The new film David Foster: Off the Record is screening at TIFF this week. It’s a revealing and personal profile of Grammy Award–winning composer and producer David Foster, with interviews from the artists who know the music legend best, including Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Barbra Streisand, Chicago, Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones, and Michael Bublé.
In the doc, we find out about his Victoria, BC roots, his tough times overseas as a young pop artist, his move to LA, and his rise to fame…But also his philanthropic side, his many marriages and families, and his tough demeanour in the studio and business setting.
The man to tell the story is none other than acclaimed filmmaker Barry Avrich. He joined Mark Wigmore on The Oasis.
