Christopher Eoyang

Christopher Eoyang

Christopher Eoyang is a nomadic US citizen working in international finance, largely in obscure parts of the world. His transition to film came naturally from his interests in nurturing uncommon talent in unassuming places, and extensive experience in global arbitrage. As technology creates a new equilibrium in film distribution, he believes content will be further elevated in the entertainment value chain. He has degrees from Columbia University and INSEAD.
