About us


Experimental Forest Films is the collaborative effort of filmmakers Kathleen Hepburn and Tyler Hagan. 

Kathleen Hepburn is a Vancouver born writer and director, and a graduate of the Canadian Film Centre’s 2014 Writer’s Lab. Her debut feature, NEVER STEADY, NEVER STILL, was awarded the WIDC Feature Film Award in 2014 and is currently in distribution with Soda Pictures/Thunderbird Releasing. Her short film works, which have screened at festivals across North America, draw from fragmented memories, personal histories, and a deep connection to landscape. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing, and a BFA in Film Production from the Universities of Guelph and Simon Fraser respectively. She currently lives with her partner and two dogs on the rainy west coast.

Tyler Hagan  is a filmmaker, photographer, and historian based in Vancouver, B.C. whose work circles around ideas of landscape, place, and identity.  His work has shown at Berlinale, Montreal World Film Festival, imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival, as well as online with the CBC, and the National Screen Institute of Canada. His latest work is a cross­-disciplinary project comprised of the interactive documentary Similkameen Crossroads and the photography and video exhibition In the Similkameen. He is currently a Master's candidate in History at the University of British Columbia. He received his BFA in Film from Simon Fraser University’s School For the Contemporary Arts.
