Kimberly Bautista is a Colombian-American award-winning writer, director, and producer from Pasadena, California. Her feature-length documentary film "Justice for My Sister" about femicide in Guatemala was broadcast on PBS Stations and TeleSUR, and encouraged audiences to break the silence about abuse, many for the first time. This laid the groundwork for her to found the arts nonprofit Justice for My Sister Collective--to train underrepresented filmmakers to transform experiences marked by trauma into stories of healing, and to promote racial justice and gender equality.

Outfest Fusion premiered Kimberly's comedic pilot "The SweetSpot," about the "in-between generation," who start to run things... slower than they'd like. She's currently developing a dark comedy/magical realism TV series titled "Elemental Powers," about women’s power to heal.
