PETER LYNCH is one of Canada's most widely acclaimed filmmakers. His first dramatic short Arrowhead received a Genie Award in 1994. In 1996, Lynch made the wildly successful Project Grizzly, one of the most acclaimed Canadian documentaries of all time, and referenced the next year on The Simpsons. This was followed by The Herd which Lynch co-wrote and directed, which was a festival hit worldwide. In 2001, Cyberman, a portrait of Steve Mann played to critical acclaim at over fifty international film festivals and was listed as one of the top ten feature films of 2002 by Film Comment. Lynch comes out of an interdisciplinary background in the arts and is responsible for staging many seminal multimedia cultural events in Toronto and around the world, notably Kitchen Sync and Video Culture International (1983-1987), a landmark video new media festival, works with Brian Eno, Bill Viola and a major installation work with Nam June Paik. He is a self-proclaimed amateur archeologist, an avid collector of contemporary art, a soccer freak, a foodie, and extensive traveler.
