Experiencing FoST Fest


“We are creating a unique story world,” said Charles Melcher, the festival’s founder. “Our tag line is ‘All the world’s a stage, come be a player,’ and this is the ultimate expression of that sentiment.”

In an article for the New York Times, Julie Satow writes about the first-ever Future of StoryTelling Festival (aka FoST Fest), which will be held in New York City from October 7 to 9. The public festival will feature interactive virtual-reality experiences, immersive theater, panel discussions, and other unique storytelling exhibitions, Satow writes.
