Mimmo Di Giacomo – Producer
A senior fundraising executive in the non-profit sector, with 18 years of experience in fundraising, marketing and communications. Born and raised in Milan, Italy, he developed his career mainly in North America (Vancouver is his second home and he holds Canadian citizenship as well). Amongst his career highlights, he was involved for few years with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), working on resource mobilisation in support of environmental protection and sustainability particularly related to Forestry and Marine habitats.
However, being a creative at heart with a background in Classical Studies acquired during his formative years, he has always maintained a keen interest in storytelling and filmmaking until 2010 when he has finally decided to invest in the opportunity of joining the industry. His transferable skills, talents and successful experience consolidated in the non-profit world, in conjunction to his understanding of community involvement and engagement, are great assets to inject a new and fresher approach to filmmaking.
He has chosen to establish a long-term, artistic and business collaboration with Goodhew, with whom he co-founded Babaloo Films Ltd, as they share the same commitment to the artistic vision and values. He won’t hide that he would love to see a few of his own stories produced as well have a go at directing… one day… in a not too distant future!
