PETE TRAVIS'S (Director) first feature, Omagh, earned many prizes around the world, including the New Directors Discovery Award at the 2004 Toronto Film Festival, Best European Movie at San Sebastian, an Irish Film and TV Academy Award for best Irish Film, and a UK BAFTA. The film depicts the search for justice after the 1998 bombing in Omagh, Northern Ireland.
Previously, the Manchester-born director helmed the Emmy Award-winning British miniseries "Henry VIII," staring Ray Winston and Helena Bonham Carter; "The Jury," written by Peter Morgan; "Other Peoples Children"; and "Cold Feet."
Formerly a community worker, Travis paid his way through post-graduate film school by working as a motorcycle courier. His first short film, Faith, based on a Nick Hornby story, was funded from his own savings. He persuaded a producer to match his investment pound for pound. The producer was shocked to learn Travis had £12,000 to spend.
Travis' next film is a British political thriller, Endgame, set in South Africa.
