Director PETER NICKS’ latest feature documentary The Waiting Room was released in 2012 to critical acclaim, being named by the San Francisco Film Critics Circle as the best documentary of 2012 and shortlisted for an Academy Award®. It received the Stella Artois Truer The Fiction filmmaking grant, Gotham IFP and Independent Spirit Award nominations for best documentary and a Cinema Eye nomination for best debut feature. Prior to his recent work in film, Nicks produced and directed nonfiction television, earning an Emmy for Blame Somebody Else, a PBS documentary exploring human trafficking during the Iraq War. Nicks was recently awarded the SFFS/KRF screenwriting grant for his first narrative feature Escaping Morgantown, loosely based on the year he spent in federal prison in the early 90s. He received his B.A. in English from Howard University and his M.A. in journalism from UC Berkeley.
