Having copped the Special Jury Award (for Catfish at the 1999 Worldfest Houston International Film Festival, Christopher is hoping to net top honors gain with his latest film, Face The Music at the prestigious festival, to open April 20, the picture will compete in the Feature Film/Comedy category; Christopher himself is up for Best Actor. Then, on April 25, he, Face The Music and its producer were being honored at a red-carpet event in Houston.
