Josh Appignanesi


Josh loves making the ordinary extraordinary. Creating cinematic stories from real lives, he draws out loveable performances from everyday folk, finding striking – or hilarious – visuals from what’s staring us in the face.

Josh has directed talent including Tom Hiddleston, John Malkovich, Miranda Hart, David Tennant, Matt Lucas and Omid Djalili among others.

His recent work includes his feature doco The New Man, in which he bares all and turns the camera on himself and his wife as they undergo the wry, hilarious journey to becoming parents in our era of IVF. Other work includes the award-winning comedy The Infidel, an upcoming playful thriller Female Human Animal and a run of studio feature film script work.
