Craig D. Foster

Director | Writer

Hello! My name is Craig and I’m a filmmaker based in Sydney, Australia.

My short films have screened at over 3 dozen festivals worldwide and have been decorated with multiple awards including Best Comedy at Vivid Freshflix for Overtime and Best Short Film for Parrot at three different festivals. Overtime was also nominated for an Australian Writer’s Guild award and has been licensed for inclusion in multiple ‘best of’ horror anthologies. Online, my work has been viewed more than 1 million times.

I gravitate towards the cheeky, the dark and sometimes the bleak, but always imbue my work with curiosity, heart and pathos. I search for meaning, but never forget the importance of fun and spectacle. I am also driven to create work that matters in a world quickly spiralling into catastrophe. In 2019 I financed, produced and directed Time for the Talk – an Australian Federal Election campaign ad and vote compass website aimed at addressing indifference on climate change.

I am a graduate of the Australian Film Television and Radio School and am also broadly skilled and knowledgeable in production with 10 years experience as an Assistant Director in TV, Feature and Commercial projects.

I am currently accepting freelance work…
