Christie’s work centers on fostering an independent, vibrant, and diverse media sector. She has spent her career supporting individuals and institutions that are making media that matters — from independent filmmakers documenting powerful stories to social entrepreneurs disrupting the way media is created, distributed and promoted.
Christie started her career at a venture capital firm, spent six years managing sales and marketing for Women Make Movies, the world’s leading distributor of films by and about women, and is a co-founder of Louder, the crowd-promotion platform for ideas that matter. She serves on the board of the Roosevelt Institute and was recently named a Social Citizen Ambassador by the Case Foundation.
Christie holds a BA from Yale University and a MBA with distinction from the University of Oxford, where she was a Skoll Scholar in Social Entrepreneurship and graduated with the Said Prize, awarded annually to the program’s top student. She lives in Oakland and is a proud co-owner of the Rio Theater in Monte Rio, CA.
