S4E1 - Beautiful Disasters w/ Connor Gaston
Show Notes

There’s certain to be lots that filmmakers and other creatives can relate to in part one of Joyce Kline’s two-part interview with Vancouver based, internationally award-winning, writer/director Connor Gaston. With humour and rare honesty, Connor shares the joys and challenges of growing up in a household of writers, adapting his own father’s novel, collaborating with his brother Vaughn, directing children, and how he bounces back when something doesn’t work. 

Connor’s films have screened in prestigious festivals around the world including TIFF, Busan, Sapporo, Sedona, Newport Beach, Whistler, and Vancouver Film Festival—along the way winning multiple Leos and other awards including a Grand Prix in Paris’s Courts Devant short film festival. He won the BC Emerging Filmmaker Award at Vancouver International Film Festival, graduated from Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Centre, and was a member of the 2017 TIFF Talent Lab.  He currently teaches at the Vancouver Film School.
