Kit Weyman is a recognized Toronto actor, writer, and director. Growing up in front of the camera on various lead and supporting roles in film and television, Kit was able to harness his deep love of storytelling into a burgeoning career as a director. His debut short film “Ways to Water” has been featured in the 2017 Coup de Couer at the Cannes Short Film Corner, and screened at the Canadian Film Fest. The exploration of the human relationship to water – metaphorically, scientifically, and socially – has been a constant theme within his work. Kit is also known within Toronto’s music community, coming up in the hip hop and music scene. Fusing the two worlds, he started directing music videos and creating visuals in 2012 and has since made a name for himself as a creative force in the city. He attended the Etobicoke School of the Arts, Ryerson Theatre school, as well as York University for creative writing and screenplays.
