Peter Hammer

Peter Hammer (1981) is a Danish filmmaker. His artistic research centres on imagination as a critical mode of emancipation from dominant narratives, taking cues from coincidences and encounters.

He began his career as an investigative television journalist in 2005, researching foul play and chasing crooks. In search of more playful pastures he moved into freer forms of programming, creating genre-subverting documentaries and live performances, often synthesising fiction and journalism. Along the way his propensity for an open, exploratory cinematic practice became evident.

He holds a Bachelor of Journalism (Danish School of Media & Journalism), and before joining the Master of Film programme (Dutch Film Academy) he was an award-winning director and creative producer with the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.
