Born in Korea as a politician's daughter in a conservative family, Christine Shin moved to the United States by herself at the age of 16 to follow her dream as a filmmaker.
While studying in the MFA program at USC School of Cinematic Arts, Christine directed a commercial spot, MOVIE DATE, as one of the ten national finalists for Coca Cola Refreshing Filmmaker's Award Contest. Her award-winning thesis film, JANIE, screened at nearly 50 festivals worldwide and received numerous awards such as Cine Golden Eagle Award and Audience Award from Dances With Films. The film had the TV premiere on PBS as a part of Fine Cut Series and has been distributed through Little Film Big Heart.
With her feature script, MY FAKE HUSBAND, Christine received Fellowship from Filmmakers Development Lab by Korean Film Council. The same script was the runner-up for the New Writers Awards by Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment and Fox. Christine is a Film Independent Fellow and Caucus Foundation Grant recipient, and she was a finalist for the Disney/ABC Directing Program.
Christine’s latest film, ENCOUNTER, garnered Platinum Remi Award from Worldfest Houston and was distributed by Shorts International. Recently her television pilot script, TRANSCENDENCE, made the semifinalist for the Diverse Voices contest by WeScreenplay.
