Christine.photo Christine Dávila is a first generation Mexican-American born and raised in Chicago. Her passion for discovering original and underrepresented voices led her to pursue a career in film festival programming.  She started to screen films for the 2008 Sundance Film Festival where she is currently a Programming Associate, and also evaluates projects for Sundance Institute’s International Screenwriters lab.  Davila has also been an Associate Programmer for The San Francisco International Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Festival, and the Morelia International Film Festival.  She programs a monthly screening series in LA’s Downtown Independent theater.  A regular volunteer at Centro Del Pueblo, a non-profit community service center for at risk youth in Echo Park, she also writes, not as frequently as she’d like to, on her blog, Chicana from Chicago, a forum where she tracks, interviews and covers US Latino films and filmmakers.
