Christina Acevedo, a multifaceted artist, calls Philadelphia home. She earned her degree in Filmmaking and Film Theory from NYU, laying the foundation for her creative work and research. In 2008, Christina embarked on her directorial and screenwriting path, ultimately garnering recognition with her debut short film, ‘Wild Idle,’ premiering at the ICA Open Video Call in 2011 and earning a coveted spot at the Cannes Film Festival Court Métrage Selection.
While her roots were in narrative filmmaking, Christina’s artistic evolution led her to explore experimental music and video art in 2013. She began experimenting with editing techniques, blending tape recordings, found footage, and cherished childhood home videos. This artistic exploration opened doors to the world of music video production in 2014, a path she would tread for the next eight years.
Christina’s creative journey included directing, cinematography, and producing music videos in Los Angeles. Notably, six of these projects were collaborative endeavors with visual artist and musician Geneva Jacuzzi.
Expanding on her art practice, Christina ventured into the world of music, releasing two EPs, including one on cassette in partnership with the UK label Industrial Coast, under her artist pseudonym ‘T I N A.’ In addition to her musical pursuits, she developed the brand ProForce Sport, specializing in martial arts athleisure wear. Her creative interests continued to diversify as she explored the realm of SFX makeup.
Recently, Christina completed her short horror film, ‘The Pointy Slippers,’ shot in the charming yet spooky backdrop of Philadelphia in May 2023. As she continues to push artistic boundaries, Christina is now immersed in the research and development of her next horror film, promising new and exciting cinematic ventures on the horizon.
