Jimmy Bustos

Jimmy was born in Laja, Chile and moved to Canada in the 70’s. The early years were a little tough adjusting to the weather, culture and many other things new immigrants struggle with. Over the years the path and destiny that brought him to this beautiful country has made him a proud Chilean-Canadian filmmaker. He loves what he does, shooting, directing, editing, and writing. He feels that every aspect of filmmaking is fascinating and It makes him feel incredible to learn something new in every position or on any project he works on. He has worked on many award winning films and has traveled the world meeting new people, learning about their cultures and having some great adventures. His proudest accomplishment in film has been Co-Directing the short film Slingshot that took home Best Alberta Short Film and Best Make-up at the Alberta Media Production Industry Awards in 2011.
