The world of filmmaking is a place where one can make their mark by telling a story, and few have done so as uniquely as accomplished Mexican director, Guillermo del Toro. In his films from Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacfic Rim, to The Shape of Water you can find stunning visuals, spectacle, and creative characters. You’ll find his love of horror and monsters and the examination of our fears in his work as well. His talents are recognized by the Academy, Golden Globes and BAFTA, to name a few. He won a Best Picture Oscar in 2017 for the film The Shape of Water which stunned both critics and audiences with its unconventional love story. And as any fan of del Toro’s films know he is anything but conventional.
