About Christin Turner

Christin Turner (b. USA) is a filmmaker and video artist. Her work depicts landscape as both metaphor and means for traversing psychological terrains, and investigates the possibilities of cinema as a site for transcendence. Turner’s use of color and light has been described as painterly, impressionistic, and psychedelic. She is currently working on two feature films, Limbo in Paradise) a hybrid doc of a flawed young man wants to be a part of the world, and Dreaming in Red, an essay film connecting Pompeii, Cinema, and women's search for the Self through the ages.

Turner received an MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a BA from the University of California San Diego. Her experimental films have been featured on vdrome and Frieze, and have screened at a variety of venues including the Museum of Modern Art, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Karlovy-Vary, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema Montreal, 25FPS Festival, Kurzfilmtage Winterthur and at Kurzfilmtage Hamburg where she was awarded the De-Framed Prize (2017). Her work has been supported with residencies at MacDowell, the Bogliasco Foundation and the Villa Sträuli. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Lausanne, Switzerland.

For commissioned work, she has created unique and memorable content for record companies, fashion labels, and live events.
