Jim Hosking started as a copywriter directing promos at MTV in New York. After that Jim started directing many, many, many commercials before he ran off to make features. 

His first film "The Greasy Strangler” premiered at Sundance. It went on to win Best Comedy at the Empire Film Awards and The Discovery Award at the British Independent Film Awards. His second feature film "An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn" premiered at Sundance too. Starring Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Matt Berry and Craig Robinson amongst others. In total Jim has had four projects premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. 

Jim’s film-making style is distinctive, yet indefinable. Absurd comedy, eccentric characters and often downright shocking visuals, Jim's films are surprising, but for more than just the eccentricities. Under the strange surface are intricate and emotional stories so unexpectedly relatable and sensitive you’ll both laugh and cry. Possibly scream, but mostly laugh.
