2020 Festival Poster by Ken Steacy
Ken Steacy is a Canadian comics creator who has chronicled the exploits of Iron Man, Harry Potter, and the Star Wars gang. He’s also collaborated with authors Harlan Ellison, Douglas Coupland, and Margaret Atwood, with whom he created WAR BEARS, the bittersweet tale of the rise and demise of a fictional Toronto comics company during WWII. The recipient of an Eisner and an Inkpot award, Ken was inducted into the Joe Shuster Hall of Fame, a lifetime achievement award honouring Canadian comic book creators for their contributions to the industry. He currently teaches Comics & Graphic Novels, a visual storytelling program he co-created with his wife, author/illustrator Joan Steacy at Camosun College. VIJFF is honoured to have Ken use his artistic creations to enhance the quality of our 2020 International Jewish Film Festival while eliciting a chuckle from the viewer.
