Born in Edinburgh in 1960, Christopher Young left Scotland to study at Oxford (MA), then taught in Paris (Lycee Henri IV) before returning home as a Scottish Film Trainee.

He took a diploma in film production at NYU in the USA, before working as a film editor back in the UK. In 1986 he set up his own independent feature film development and production company, Young Films, which is now based on the Isle of Skye.

Productions have included Venus Peter, Gregory's Two Girls and Festival for which he won a British Comedy Award for best film and a UK BAFTA nomination for Best British Film.
