Peter Snowdon is a filmmaker and researcher. His film and video work combines documentary process with formal experimentation. His short films are distributed by the Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Paris), and have been widely shown at festivals.
His first feature-length film, The Uprising (Rien à voir production/Third Films), débuted at the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival in 2013, where it won the Opus Bonum award for best world documentary. It has since played at over 20 festivals, and won several more prizes.
Peter has lived and worked in Egypt, Palestine, and France, and is currently based in Belgium. He teaches filmmaking in the visual anthropology programme at Leiden University, where he is also a post-doctoral researcher.
