Peter Treherne is an experimental filmmaker and moving image artist working in the South East of England. Influenced by Ben Rivers, Michelangelo Frammartino and Pedro Costa he uses duration to investigate specific spaces and their inhabitants, and to interrogate temporality in film.
Peter cofounded the Slow Film Festival in 2017 and currently works as its creative director. The festival focuses exclusively on slow cinema, but with an emphasis on short works, suggesting it is not only a film’s length, but also its style and content, which makes it slow. Each year the festival screens work from emerging moving image artists alongside films from established filmmakers. A post festival tour distributes the Slow Short Film selection to cinemas and galleries throughout the uk.
Peter holds a degree in English Literature from the University of St Andrews and a masters in Film Aesthetics from the University of Oxford.
