Christopher Auchter

British Columbia

Christopher Auchter grew up roaming the beaches and forests of the Haida Gwaii archipelago off Canada’s West Coast. Auchter’s art practice is fuelled by the land and stories of the Haida people, his adventures in forestry and commercial fishing, and by the colourful people with whom he has lived and worked. From early on, he recorded his feelings and impressions as images, and today his filmmaking serves the same function. Auchter studied Media Arts at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design (Vancouver, British Columbia) and graduated with honours in Computer Animation from Sheridan College in Ontario. His goal is to create films that are as genuine and entertaining as the many people and environments that have inspired him. Previous projects include writing/directing award winning NFB films such as the short doc, "Now is the Time," and the animated short "The Mountain of SGaana." Christopher has also directed NFB short doc, "Ryan Reynolds, I’m a Laureate?" and DreamWorks Animation children’s series, "Not Quite Narwhal" for Netflix.
