Jaime Humberto Hermosillo (born 22 January 1942) is a Mexican film director, often compared to Spain's Pedro Almodóvar.

Born in Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes, in center Mexico, Hermosillo's films often explore the hypocrisy of middle-class Mexican values.

He worked with Gabriel García Márquez on "Mary My Dearest" in 1979 and "The Summer of Miss Forbes" in 1988. His 1991 film Homework was entered into the 17th Moscow International Film Festival where it won a Special Mention.[1]

Hermosillo currently teaches film-making at the University of Guadalajara and has recently collaborated with his students on various projects.
