Josh Fox is best known as the Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning writer/director of GASLAND, a 2010 documentary exposing the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”. In the years since, Fox has become internationally recognized as a spokesperson and leader on the issue of clean energy.
In 2017, he was awarded his third Environmental Media Association award for Best Documentary for his latest film HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN’T CHANGE. With indigenous filmmakers Doug Good Feather and Myron Dewey, he also produced, co-directed and co-wrote the critically acclaimed feature AWAKE, A DREAM FROM STANDING ROCK.
In 2018, Fox created THE TRUTH HAS CHANGED, a solo performance, book and film about the misinformation and propaganda which manipulate our current media and political ecosystem. In the performance he tells of his extensive frontline reporting, and the smear campaigns waged against him for nearly a decade by the fossil fuel industry.
Due to his extensive work in environmental activism, Fox was appointed to the Democratic Platform committee in 2016 by Bernie Sanders. Working with Bill McKibben, Nina Turner, Ben Jealous and others Fox worked to pass historic amendments that phase out fossil fuels and set goals towards 100% renewable energy development.
Fox is a journalist most recently seen in Rolling Stone, Daily Beast and AJ+ among others. He is also the founder and producing artistic director of the International WOW Company, a film and theater company that has performed across the US, Europe and Asia.
