Santa Fe Is Oregon Territory: Chris Eyre Named Head Of SFUAD Film School

January 19th, 2012 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · News

That’s Santa Fe University Art and Design (SFUAD), to you! Eyre will be chairing the Moving Image Arts Department.

From Native American Times:

“I am thrilled to hear of this inspired appointment,” said Robert Redford. “Chris Eyre is a successful and authentic voice in cinema and perfect for this position. His vision and imprimatur on this program will be profoundly valuable in ways that Chris, alone, is uniquely positioned to fill,” continued Redford. “His influence on a new generation of storytellers will be significant.”

Chris Eyre grew up in Klamath Falls. He studied film ( actually, I think, television) at Mt Hood Community College before heading off to NYU film school. It was in New York that Smoke Signals, his first project, drew the attention of future mentor, Robert Redford.

Congratulations, Chris!
