Christopher Yip is a writer-director based in Toronto. His six-episode short-form series, Streams Flow From A River was Executive-Produced by Yip and Shant Joshi (Framing Agnes), co-executive produced by Abdul Malik (Peace By Chocolate), and produced by Lindsay Blair Goeldner (I Like Movies). The drama is about the invisible struggles immigrant families face while trying to make a home in the West. A freak snowstorm traps a dysfunctional Chinese-Canadian family together in their rural Albertan hometown, forcing them to confront events from a decade ago that tore them all apart. The series will premiere on opening night of this year’s Canadian Film Fest – March 28th at 9PM as a Super Channel broadcast, and is the first ever digital series to be included in the festival. Afterwards it will continue to be available on Super Channel from April 1st. We list his credits as a Director first.
