Biography

Jimmy G. Pettigrew graduated from the film and television school of Quebec City in 2006 with a diploma in directing in a beautiful little setting. With his colleague Francis Fortier, he immediately founded the collective "Le boîte insolente", where he produced, wrote, directed and edited the group's capsules for the web. Since then, he has independently produced and directed short fiction films. Jimmy participates in various creative laboratories while earning a living in cinema, cartoon, graphic design, illustration and the teaching of his art.

He founded the collective La vie est belle, which presents exclusive film screenings by filmmakers from Quebec City and elsewhere. Since 2017, he is also managing director of the Vitesse lumière fantasy film festival.
