Joséfa is a French writer-director based in Scotland where she co-founded Shakehaus, a production company in 2016. Her short film EVENT HORIZON has been distributed in French cinemas by L’Agence du Court Métrage and her latest short, TOMORROW MIGHT BE THE DAY, was commissioned by the Scottish Film Talent Network in 2018. Joséfa was also selected to the Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent lab that same year.

In 2019, her first feature project AURORA’S SKIES received funding for development from SFTN and her second project THE LAST KIND was selected to EIFF’s Talent Lab Connects. In 2020, Aurora’s Skies was selected for the fourth edition of the European development programme LESS IS MORE.

Joséfa is fascinated by the outer space which inspires her to write speculative and grounded sci-fi stories, primarily targeted toward younger audiences. She loves coming-of-age stories and wants to tell the tales of smart but awkward female characters.

Based in Glasgow, UK / Strasbourg, France. Experienced with children.
Available for Commercial work.
