Bobbie Peers made his mark on Norwegian film history in 2006 when he won a Cannes Palme d’Or for his short film Sniffer, which he’d both written and directed. After graduating from London International Film School, Peers continued to write and direct for television, producing several short films and commercials. In 2015, Peers debuted as a feature film director with Dirk Ohm – The Disappearing Illusionist.
In 2018, Peers’ eagerly awaited new short film, To Plant a Flag, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. The drama-comedy short, set in early 1960s Iceland, stars Jason Schwartzman and Jake Johnson.
In addition to being a director and writer, Peers is a popular children’s books author. His series about the code-cracking boy genius William Wenton (William Wenton and the Luridium Thief) has won numerous awards and international acclaim. In addition, his books have been translated into 38 languages.
