Joseph Simmons is a Yorkshire filmmaker with a passion for future facing human stories. He likes narratives that make the audience question the world as it is and wonder where society is going. He tends to make work that combines his interests in philosophy, psychology, modern technology and science whilst striving to achieve a recognisably present day aesthetic. He has directed a number of short films, music videos, and a web series that have screened internationally at BAFTA and BIFA recognised film festivals. He holds a MA in Filmmaking from the Northern Film School and loves making work that showcases the region he is from.
