Joshua Seftel (born July 17, 1968) is an American filmmaker. He currently lives in New York City and is represented by Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles. Seftel began his career in documentaries at age 22 with his Emmy-nominated film, Lost and Found, about Romania's orphaned children. He followed this with several films including the political campaign film Taking on the Kennedys, selected by Time Magazine as one of the “ten best of the year”; the underdog sports film The Home Team which premiered at SXSW, and the behind-the-scenes film about Annie's Broadway revival It’s the Hard Knock Life which the New York Times called “delightful.” Seftel's first foray into comedy, Breaking the Mold, gained cult status on the film festival circuit and caught the attention of filmmaker Alexander Payne, who championed him as a director. Seftel went on to direct the political satire War, Inc. starring John Cusack, Marisa Tomei, Hilary Duff, Joan Cusack, and Ben Kingsley which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Seftel continues his work both in documentary film, mini-series, and commercial branded content with pieces such as his most recent series, The Secret Life of Muslims.
