Another queer trying to change the world one story at a time!
French Canadian award-winning screenwriter/director Joshua Maheu first pursued an educational path in Communications Studies at Concordia University, in Montreal, before fully committing to his passion of storytelling.
Within his curriculum, his final film project S.U.G.A.R. (2017) truly led him to his filmic debut while winning his first award at the North American Film Awards.
After completing his bachelor’s degree, his pursuit took him to the sought-after Vancouver Film School where he completed a one-year film production degree. During said year, he wrote and directed his most recent award-winning success: L'Arpège (2019).
Having curated summers and worked at camps for children with disabilities for ten years, L’Arpège remains a truly introspective and intimate project. He wrote the piece as a response to the representation of people with disabilities in cinema.
Thus far, L'Arpège has won Best Soundtrack at the 2020 Reale Film Festival and four finalist awards for Best Short Film (i.e. Eurasia Fest 2020, Florence Film Festival 2019, 1904 Deaf Film Festival) and Audience's Choice (1904 Deaf Film Festival); while having accumulated multiple official selections worldwide, with its North American Premiere scheduled later this summer.
As he is excited to conclude L’Arpège's festival run, Joshua is currently developing his first web series, which has already won a Finalist Award for Best TV Script at the 2020 Wiki Screenwriting Contest.
