Christopher Cunetto is an award-winning filmmaker, visual artist, and creative strategist based in Washington, DC. Beyond his work in commercial video, his narrative film has been screened at diverse venues - from the premiere of his short film Jeux, a love letter to DC LGBT nightlight, at local bar Number 9, to a selection of shorts celebrating Iberian poets at The Kennedy Center, to short films screening internationally. His latest short "Safe Word" is currently in festivals, including the Academy Award Qualifying fest Provincetown International Film Festival and Canadian Screen Award qualifying festival Inside Out Toronto.
As a director, Christopher pursues stories that give language to complex experiences and that feature perspectives that are traditionally overlooked. Drama, heart, and transformation are critical components of stories he loves, and his film work strives to take these elements and deploy them in gripping, urgent films.
