Adam Grant Warren
Now based in Vancouver, Adam was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. He started writing professionally in his early twenties, as a radio columnist for the CBC Morning Show. In that time, he also became Newfoundland's youngest ever winner of both the Arts and Letters Award for Fiction, and the George Storey Medal of Excellence in Literature.
On the heels of that success, Adam moved west to study at Vancouver Film School. His films have since screened as official selections at festivals including California’s Newport Beach Film Festival, the National Screen Institute’s Online All-Star Reel, and the Vancouver International Film Festival – where his film Float took home the honours for Best Canadian Short in 2012. In 2016, Conocerlos (Get to Know Them) earned him his first BC Film Leo Award Nomination for Best Screenwriting.
As a performer, Adam is a frequent collaborator with Vancouver's All Bodies Dance Project. He has also appeared in stage productions including Frank Theatre’s All In, Touchstone’s interactive web experiment, Scene/Change, and Real Wheels Theatre's landmark production of David Freeman's CREEPS, for which he won a Jessie Award. Following development as part of the National Writers' Colony at Vancouver’s Playwrights’ Theatre Centre, his solo show, Last Train In, premiered at Victoria’s UNOFest, and went on to critical acclaim at Vancouver's 2017 rEvolver Theatre Festival.
