Christoph Kuschnig is a director and writer.
He received his MFA with honors from Columbia University’s Graduate Film School, where his short film Hatch was selected for Faculty Selects and has since gone to screen at festivals in Europe and the US. It was awarded a NBR Student Grant, was nominated for a Student Academy Award in 2012 and received 25+ awards.
He was selected to be part of the 2012 Berlinale Talent Campus among 4300 applicants and participated in numerous script labs.
While his films explore the dark side of the human psyche, combining a uniquely sensitive and highly visual approach, Christoph’s commercial work is frequently marked by a light touch and often comedic sensibility.
Christoph divides his time between Austria and the United States.
