Assistant Director/Marketing Director

Petyr Xyst

  • Petyr Xyst is an American human who has been making movies since the age of five (he’s 20 now), and for some reason has kept with it even though every project seems specifically designed to kill him in the process. His work spans genres and formats, exploring different forms in short film, music video, and new media. His work has been screened across the globe and has received honors throughout. He currently attends UNM with a major in film production, is a Sundance Institute Indigenous Program alum, and has no opinion on paper straws.
