Chris is the editor and reporter for Indiewire's Filmmaker Toolkit. Previously, he covered the indie and doc film beat for The Hollywood Reporter. When he's not writing about the innovation of today's leading independent filmmakers, Chris is helping train the next (and hopefully more diverse) generation of filmmakers through a variety of non-profits, including one he co-founded in NYCHA's Gowanus Houses.
