about foster

Foster is a Los Angeles-based filmmaker, actor and Emergence Award Recipient. She earned her BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied for 3 years with the Atlantic Theater Company under the tutelage of David Mamet, Mary McCann and Chris Bauer, among others.

In 2015, Foster co-founded Detroit Street Films, an independent film production company intent on building a robust community of filmmakers to collaborate on low-budget films. In DSF’s inaugural year, the company produced over a dozen films including Foster’s directorial debut: a gritty short about possessions and priorities titled BRICK & MOPSIE.

Her sophomore short film, WAFFLES, held its world premiere at the 2017 Inside Out LGBT Film Festival in Toronto. WAFFLES went on to screen at over a dozen festivals in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, North Carolina, Nevada, New Mexico, Australia, Germany and Hong Kong; to date, the film has been nominated for 7 awards including Best Comedy and Best Performance. WAFFLES is a raw exploration of morality and sexuality starring Jeanine Mason (Grey's Anatomy, Roswell) and Leslie Stevens (The Young and The Restless, Bosch).

Recently completed projects include PLATYPUS, a dark tragicomedy about honesty and intimacy; and the pilot presentation LOVE SCENES, LLC, a fictional, feminist take on the adult film industry. Next up she is shooting the short film MADE PUBLIC (2017 Emergence Award Recipient), as well a short series entitled GROSS ANATOMY, which will accompany the release of the book by Mara Altman. Foster has several projects in development, including the comedic short 5 STAGES OF GRIEF and a collaborative feature with Detroit Street Films based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1897 play LA RONDE
