Joshua Loftin was born in Blackheath, London, England in April 1987. He graduated from Kidbrooke Sixth Form College at 18 and went to Australia to make his first documentary on his travels and the Australian culture.
On returning he enrolled at London College of Communication to do a foundation in fiction and documentary film in which he produced his first fiction short film ‘Inertia’. Joshua then, with a distinction, joined the BA Honours Corse at Edinburgh College Of Art in ‘Film + Tv’ And worked his first year as an editor for Marcelo de Oliveira’s film ‘The Great Flood’, Recent Bafta New Talent Winner Nelson Carlo’s ‘Should We Go Home?’ and Zach Rosenau’s ‘The Inaudible Crimes Of Jasper Pidgeon’.
He is currently working on his own films which have been branching into the experimental category although they are grounded in narrative with the influences of traditional and contemporary cinema.
In the early 2010 Joshua received his first nomination from Bafta Scotland in the short film experimental category.
