Peter Bratt’s critically acclaimed first independent feature film, FOLLOW ME HOME, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 1996 as one of sixteen films in Official Competition for the Grand Jury Prize. It went on to win the Best Director Award at the 1996 American Indian Film Festival along with the Audience Award for the Best Feature Film at the 1996 San Francisco International Film Festival. In the same year, the National Board of Review also bestowed Peter with the honor of Special Recognition in Filmmaking. In 2000, Peter was honored with a Rockefeller Foundation Film/Video/Multimedia Fellowship. After a twelve year hiatus to focus on his philanthropic work, Bratt returned to Sundance with La MISSION, a haunting story of healing and transformation set on the gritty streets of one of San Francisco’s most famous districts. La MISSION also opened the 2009 San Francisco International Film Festival and is expected to be released in theaters later this year.
