Trent Peek moved to Victoria, BC in the summer of 2013. Since his move, he was suggested by his wife to re-find his lost passion, and found CineVic. From the many years of Film Schools from USC to Vancouver Film School, and then finishing off at Capilano university, he chose money over his passion and never continued toward a film career path. Since joining CineVic, Trent has renewed his passion in filmmaking, and is pursuing his goal of writing/directing his first feature. Recently, Trent has been involved in pitch competitions in Los Angeles, CA and Austin, Texas. He has also been performing stand up comedy at many amateur nights throughout Victoria, and joined the CineVic board as the Programming Director at Large in 2016.
