   Pedro Henrique is a writer-director from Brazil who graduated in Audiovisual from the University of Brasília (UnB). Although he has an acting background, he found his real passion in storytelling. He has been directing and shooting in different countries since the age of 17.

    His first short film, ROCKET, premiered at the HBO-presented New York Latino Film Festival (NYLFF) and has been screened at several other international festivals, including the Tiradentes Film Festival and the Latinx edition of NewFilmmakers LA, in partnership with The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences. ROCKET was also a winner at the International University Academic Film Festival (FACIUNI), supported by DirecTV, WarnerMedia, Sundance Collab, and CAA, which awarded Pedro a scholarship for the USC School of Cinematic Arts Summer program.

  Pedro was selected by the Thailand Short Film Competition to make a documentary in Thailand during a student filmmakers' event. He also participated at the Sundance Film Festival as an intern for The National Association of Latinos Independent Producers (NALIP).

   Pedro believes that being a film director is an opportunity to improve in observing and listening to others. He has a strong inclination towards dramatic and character-driven narratives.
