The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame will present the Patsy Montana Award to cinematographer Christina Voros at the 45th Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony. The luncheon will be held on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at the Dickies Arena where the Museum will also induct five new Inductees.
Her journey to cinematography came through shooting her own award-winning documentaries. She has lensed films for many filmmakers, including James Franco and Tate Taylor. In 2018, Ava DuVernay and Oprah Winfrey tapped her to direct an episode of their series “Queen Sugar.” Since then, she has directed and served as the director of photography on shows “Filthy Rich” and “Yellowstone.”
Voros’ involvement with the hit series “Yellowstone” started season one. Beginning as a camera operator, she became the director of photography for season two and four and has directed four episodes. She has been the only female director and director of photography for this popular series. Currently, she is in development on her feature indie film, “Valentine,” which she will write and direct, inspired by stories of the people and land of West Texas, where she resides.
She first became known to the Museum five years ago when she was researching for a “year in the life” film following young cowgirls who made commitments to the ranching life. This project was put on hold, but she is now looking to return to the project as it may evolve into an extended narrative on their lives from five years ago to where they are now.
