IAN FOSTER - WRITER, DIRECTOR & COMPOSER
Newfoundland native Ian Foster comes from a place of stories, and he knows how to tell them. As a musician, he’s a road worn troubadour who has been described as having a keen poetic sense and a searcher’s infinite wisdom in his writing, and yet can make you laugh between songs. He writes in a modern folk style and exudes a love of storytelling. In 2012, Ian wrote, directed, edited and scored his first independent short film, One More Song. The film screened at the 2013 Nickel Film Festival and took home an award for ‘Best Screenplay.’ The film also screened at the 33rd Atlantic Film Festival in 2013, and was licensed to CBC Television. Ian has also had his own music in television shows like CBC’s Republic of Doyle and Hope for Wildlife. He has composed music for various documentaries and dramatic shorts since 2011.
#MyKeystone: Walking the streets of Venice for the first time. I was on tour in Italy, and we had just a single day off to travel into Venice; not enough time to do all the usual tourist things. Just walking the streets was magical and we left feeling totally fulfilled by the experience.
