Howard J. Davis


Howard J. Davis is a British-born Canadian multi-disciplinary artist of European and African-Caribbean heritage. He is a "creative chameleon," working formatively in acting (both theatre and film), in dance, in music, and the directorial side of the arts.

He grew up in Kelowna, B.C. and studied at Ryerson School of Performance (formerly Ryerson Theatre School) in Toronto. Howard's interest in his own heritage and the African Diaspora led him to learn about the history of slavery in Canada, inspiring him to make the film C'est Moi. He strives to continue to tell stories of his heritage, marginalized cultures not at the forefront of history and modern original works with an emphasis on bringing classical, theatrical and historical contexts to contemporary cinema--enabling the past to inform the future.
