Christopher Browne

Christopher Browne is a documentary film maker/director in the USA. He is noted for directing the ten-pin bowling sports documentary A League of Ordinary Gentlemen.

Browne is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.

After graduating Browne's film career began in New York City as a production assistant on television commercials. He then took a job on a documentary called The Paris Review: Early Years, produced by the Checkerboard Film Foundation. The movie, which chronicled George Plimpton's early years at the Paris Review, offered the opportunity to work alongside legendary documentarian Albert Maysles. Working with Mr. Maysles spurred Chris' interest in documentary film and he stayed at the Checkerboard Film Foundation for another year where he supervised the post-production of The Paris Review: Early Years, and helped produce Ralph Gibson: Photographer.

A League of Ordinary Gentlemen was his first feature film, having emerged from the misadventures of following the PBA tour with cameras for twenty weeks. The movie premiered at the 2004 South by Southwest Film Festival where it won the Audience Choice award. A League of Ordinary Gentlemen has also played at the Tribeca Film Festival, Cinevegas, AFI, and Hawaii International Film festival.

After The Cup: Sons of Sakhnin United is his second feature film, also a documentary, he chronicled the story of the Israeli soccer team from the town of Sakhnin, Israel. The story follows the players, coaches, and fans as they journey together after winning the national cup. This win is significant because aside from the lack of funding, Bnei Sakhnin F.C. is also notable for being composed mostly of Arab players in the predominately Jewish state. After The Cup has been welcomed with critical acclaim when it played at the Tribeca Film Festival, as well as multiple film festivals around the country. The film was released May 21, 2010.
