Chris Eyre

Chris Eyre is an award-winning director and producer of over fifteen feature films. His film “Smoke Signals” (1998) won the Sundance Audience Award and was the first feature film directed by a Native American to receive national theatrical release. Upon the release of “Skins” (2002), starring Graham Green, People Magazine called Eyre “the pre-eminent Native American filmmaker of his time.” An enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe tribes, Eyre was until recently chair of the film school at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
