Joe Delahunty is a British-French, Film Director & Writer. He grew up on a small and quirky campsite on the South-West coast of France, surrounded by music, camcorders, basketball and a line-up of colourful characters, after his parents decided to move from their hometown of London, in search of an adventure, some better cheese and a few waves to surf.
After a sporting injury drew him away from basketball, he moved to the vibrant city of Barcelona in his early twenties to finish his studies, and started working on music videos, commercials and short documentaries, receiving millions of plays across the spectrum.
He has since directed two feature documentaries: “Blaumut: Provença 571”, following the journey of the award-winning Catalan band (Blaumut, 2019), and “Dare To Dream: A Story From El Salvador”, about financial inclusion and the adoption of bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador (FreestyleMedia, 2023).
His short documentary, “Mediterráneamente Plástico” (GoodKarma, 2019), covering microplastic pollution in the ocean, was selected for various film festivals across Spain.
Joe’s list of clients includes Penguin Random House, Arte, Specialized, Acer… and he is currently working on a screenplay for a Comedy-drama series.
