Peter Gall has a Doctorate in Philosophy and a number of other degrees in Entrepreneurship,  Management University Teaching, and Creative Arts. Peter was Head of Research and Discipline Coordinator for Management for ten years at Notre Dame University before retiring in 2019 to dive back into his real passion – screenwriting. He loves to write screenplays for the big screen, television, short films and the streaming platforms particularly in the crime, thriller, science fiction and fantasy genres.
Peter has written three features, five television pilots and ten shorts and placed in the quarter-finals or been officially selected for global screenwriting competitions, including: official selection at Get It Made Film Festival (2019); official selection at Miami Screenplay Awards (2021); Quarter-finalist at Wiki: World’s Fastest Screenplay Contest (2021); Honourable Mention at Santa Barbara International Screenplay Awards (2021); Quarter-finalist at Chicago Screenplay Awards; and official selection at Oaxaca Film Fest (2022). His latest placing and one he is most proud of is a second rounder placing at one of the highest rated International Screenplay competitions, the Austin Texas screenplay competition in October 2022.
