Christopher Sullivan is an animator, filmmaker, and performance artist whose experimental film and theater work spans thirty years. The subject matter of his work comes from many converging sources: personal, historical, visual art, literary fiction, psychology, and film. Sullivan recently completed a feature-length animated film called Consumed Spirits, for which he received Guggenheim and Rockefeller Media Arts fellowships.

Sullivan has had screenings at esteemed venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Boston Art Museum, and the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, and he has shown at many festivals, including the Short Film Expo in Ottawa, Zagreb, and New York, the Animation Celebration in Los Angeles, and Black Maria in Ann Arbor. He has also performed at the Walker Art Center, the Franklin Furnace in New York, LACE in California, and Randolph Street in Chicago. Sullivan’s awards include the Bush Foundation Fellowship and multiple NEA regional fellowships. He holds a BFA in filmmaking from MCAD.
