CRISTOBAL OLGUIN

Cristobal first linked up with CuriousWorks in 2014, playing the role of ‘Alejandro’ in our feature film RizHe has since developed a passion for filmmaking and has aspirations to be a storyteller from the other side of the camera.

Alongside developing his skills by crewing on our later films, he is studying at UTS for a double degree in Communications, Creative Intelligence and Innovation. He continues to work on private projects and loves dissecting screenplays from his favourite films. 

Born in Chile, Cristobal came to Australia with his family as a child before they returned nine years later. By 2011, he was back, this time in Western Sydney. So his formative years were divided between Chile, Cabramatta and Canley Vale (with a short period in Norway), giving him a unique worldview.

“Because I have moved around the world, seeing different aspects of culture and people, it’s easier for me to see the grey side of cultural or social issues. I never considered myself Chilean or Australian by culture, even though I grew up between both worlds, so it’s hard to identify which world I’m part of. “As a filmmaker, I’m interested in telling stories about youth, family and isolation. I want to explore and expand different genres to find new and interesting ways to tell my stories.”
