Kevin Andrew Heslop (b. 1992) is a poet, curator, art critic, film director, producerjournalist, and actor. His directorial debut, mo(u)vements. (Astoria Pictures, 2023), amplifies the work of poets from across Canada. Accompanied by a tetralingual chapbook from Rose Garden Press, the film won dozens of prizes at festivals across Canada and around the world. Heslop's work as an art critic and curator informed his latest series, Some Things Are Too Important to Take Seriously and Art Is One of Those Things (Astoria Pictures, 2024), about an hagiographical art curator reviewing the work of five-year-old geniuses. With two books of non-fiction about Medical Assistance in Dying, two more comprised of dialogue with artists from around the world, and two books of poetry forthcoming Canadian publishers, Heslop's current projects as a writer-director-producer include a documentary about MAiD, a Zé Celso biopic, and multiple short-form comedy series. He also contributes regular conversations with artists via The Miramichi Reader and Parrot Art, serves as a Director with the non-profit Changing Ways, and represents half a dozen Canadian publishers in support of the adaptation of their works to the screen via the totally made-up role of 'Extraliterary Liaison' (which sounds even better in French).
