The Journey of MOMs Plus screened at the 8th Annual SEATTLE TRUE INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL (STIFF) 2012 AND the 14th Annual LOCAL SIGHTINGS FILM FESTIVAL @The Northwest Film Forum 2011.
My first documentary short Rescue screened at the 13th Annual LOCAL SIGHTINGS FILM FESTIVAL @The Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, WA - October 2010.
Rescue began as a first year student project at Seattle Central Community College Film and Video program in 2009.
Rescue supports the new Non - profit program: The Bridge (formally The Prostituted Children’s Rescue Fund) which is one of only four safe houses in the United States that helps teens girls get off the streets and out of prostitution. The Bridge is 3 year pilot program.
Rescue was created for City Councilman Tim Burgess and YouthCare to help support fundraising efforts for safe house.
I am Christy X (sometimes Christy Nc17) – Doc Filmmaker, risk taker, Granny and local community activist. By the age of four, I knew that film was my passion, and at 38 I finally pursued my dream. As a single parent I completed my AS degree through the SCCC’s Film and Video program in June of 2011. My desire to capture the beauty and rawness of reality drew me into documentary filmmaking heart first. My strength, creativity and technical skills compliment my unconventional “street style” shooting. I am eager to tackle controversial issues, support underrepresented groups and showcase challenging topics with integrity and truth.
What some folks refer to as Cinema Verite, (I prefer to call street style.)
