“Steph’s movies’ DIY spirit takes me back to the excitement of the 2000s when Will Munro and company were rocking Toronto. DIY was at its finest. Steph makes me lament what no longer is but what is so important to experience.” —Milada Kováčová
Steph Gray's Super 8 films have screened internationally, and in Canada, with screenings at Antimatter, Inside Out, CSIF $100 Film Fest, Cinemuerte and live performed at the8fest and Splice This! Usually edited-in-camera and sometimes hand-processed, Gray’s films are accompanied by live reading or experimental sound, while exploring the city symphonically or digging in the depths of pop culture and contemplating “what you thought you knew / what you knew you thought”. Gray’s last two poetry publications are on Ottawa-based above/ground press, including Words Are What You Get / You Do It For Real.
