Duane Peterson

editor, filmmaker and programmer

Vermont, US


I'm an editor, filmmaker and programmer exploring new ways of seeing and understanding landscape, memory and time through a critical geography framework. 


As a documentary filmmaker, I take unorthodox approaches to reinterpret familiar spaces and bring overlooked histories to light.


As an editor I help bring projects from concept to completion for a wide range of clients, from independent documentary filmmakers to international sports organizations. 

As a programmer at the Climate Action Film Festival I curate stories of hope and change to inspire communities to take action in addressing the climate crisis, locally and beyond.


In 2018 I received the Critical Vision Award from University of California Santa Cruz, where I earned my BA in Film and Digital Media.
