– STEVE GRAVESTOCK –
I was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and grew up in Burlington and Mississauga. In high school I spent a year in a mining town called Logan’s Lake, an hour outside of Kamloops in the B.C. interior. I got my first job in Toronto at the Eaton Centre Cineplex, the day after John Lennon was shot.
Programming for the Festival since:
1997, I think.
Secret film love:
I don’t know.
Should have seen it by now but haven’t:
In David Lodge’s Small World, they ask a literature professor to play this game. He refuses, then capitulates after much coaxing. He confesses he’s never read Hamlet. Two months later they deny him a promotion because he never read Hamlet. Homey ain’t playing this game.
Favourite television series:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Star-crossed romances, demons, vampires, Cordelia, countless battles to save the world. Like there’s a choice?
Your secret Toronto begins…
Bickford Park and Christie Pitts, where my family plays baseball. And, afterwards, the best bar in the city, The Caledonian, where we drink it off.» (tiff.net)
