Early life and education

Thomas was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, but was raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He began making films with the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers in his teenage years before attending Concordia University's Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in Montreal in the early 2000s. After completing his BFA, he returned to Calgary to establish the North Country Cinema media arts collective in 2005.

Directing and producing

Kyle Thomas is a founding member of North Country Cinema, along with filmmakers Alexander Carson and Nicholas Martin, whom he met at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. Through North Country Cinema, Thomas has focused on producing director-driven film and video content, and has created award-winning works that have screened at major international festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival and SXSW. Thomas' recent films have portrayed neo-realist narratives concerned with intimate, personal stories depicting life in rural Alberta. Following the announcement that his first feature film The Valley Below would be funded by Telefilm Canada, he was declared one of "10 Canadians to Watch at Cannes" in 2013.

Thomas plays the role of Danny in North Country Cinema's second feature film O, Brazen Age written & directed by Alexander Carson. The film will premiere at the Vancouver International Film Festival in 2015.
