John Chrisstoffels

Director, Cinematographer

Award-winning cinematographer John Chrisstoffels has been capturing Christchurch and its inhabitants on-screen for over two decades: in music videos for record label Flying Nun, short films, and the occasional movie and documentary. The sometime director has taught film at Canterbury University's School of Fine Arts since 2002.

Filmmaking is an amazing journey — people, places, stories — and as I get older, the experience just gets deeper. John Chrisstoffels
