Joshua Gleason



Joshua Gleason is a filmmaker and writer originally from northern New Jersey.  As a founding member of The Spirit Farm, Josh has written, directed, and shot several short films and performance pieces that explore the gray area of 'humanness' between the animal and emotional.  His films have screened at festivals worldwide including his graduate thesis film (A Place of Our Own) which premiered at Indie Memphis Film Festival in 2014 and is currently being distributed internationally by Gonella Productions (FR).   


Aside from his own work, he has collaborated below-the-line on films like Matt Porterfield's Putty Hill (Berlin, SXSW '10) and I Used to Be Darker (Sundance, Berlin '13) and Andrew Ahn's Spa Night (Sundance '16).  


He received a B.A. from Johns Hopkins University and holds his M.F.A. in Film Directing from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).


Josh now teaches film history and production and is in the process of developing his first feature film entitled Where the Boys Are
