Alumnus Evan Morgan (BFA ’08), a graduate of York’s film program, has a lot to celebrate. His film The Kid Detective, named by TIFF as one of 10 best Canadian features and shorts of 2020, is bringing in rave reviews. While in the York film and video program, Evan Morgan (BFA ’08) developed his voice as a writer and filmmaker while part of a tight-knit community.
