Award winning filmmaker, Chuy Santillan, (Imagen Award) has always had a feel for Chicano cinema. An Oxnard native, Chuy has always been the storyteller for the countless many untold stories, ignored by either film festival circuits or pre-production committees.

His work has been widely recognized starting with films such as El Triunfo, Ingles, The Big Moment, Building Champions Los Garcia, and currently in development...In Our Backyards and Legends Of the Ring.

"El Chuy" has been with ChiFF for many years and is the perennial professional.
