Director Biography - Peter King

Peter is an award winning, BIFA nominated director from the North East of England.

Whether comedy or drama, his work focusses on human nature, exploring the subtleties of society and individuals. Peter’s work is characterised by natural performances and verité visual style.

His latest short film, Crack, a mockumentary about underground conker fighting, satirises the image of urban life in London, playfully using tropes of the gritty gang genre to twist the narrative of the disaffected youth.
