Christopher Ian Smith is a filmmaker and audiovisual artist with a background in television and music. For many years, he was a DJ/VJ and performer with the audiovisual group Addictive TV. His work has been shown internationally at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and National Film Theatre, London. His films are both documentary and fiction, and sometimes merge the two. He is primarily focused on the interplay between landscape, folklore, architecture and the uncanny. Smiths’ films and moving image works have been screened at festivals globally, and he has been selected for a number of prizes and awards, including the Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent Lab and the Film London Micro Market. He also founded and programmed the film symposium EMERGE, which is part of the East End and Cork Film Festivals.
