Peter Logue grew up in Southwest Harbor and graduated from Mount Desert Island High School in 2010. After receiving the Guy P. Gannett Scholarship, he attended the University of Connecticut to study filmmaking and journalism. While in school, he was a producer and editor for UConn Athletic Video and worked closely with the 2014 national champion men’s basketball team.
In recent directorial efforts, he has made a series of acclaimed documentaries that focus on telling the stories of individual people. “The Search for the White Rose” is about a group of German university students who led a massive resistance against the Nazis during WWII and has screened at Harvard, USC, DePaul, Springfield College, and over forty other venues in addition to being distributed in over 5,000 high schools nationwide. “Outrunning Parkinson’s” is about Great Cranberry Island native Michael Westphal’s return to marathon running despite his increasingly difficult battle with Parkinson’s. It has been viewed over 14,000 times online and shared widely by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. “Frank & Ada” is a portrait of two lifelong island residents who reconnected nearly seventy years after dating in high school, and was featured by the Huffington Post.
In addition to directing and producing his own films, Peter is as a freelance filmmaker and has done commissioned work over the last five years for many clients, including Friends of Acadia, the Acadia Centennial Task Force, College of the Atlantic, the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, MDI Hospital, Camp Beech Cliff, Criterion Theatre, Acadia Fire, and the New England Parkinson’s Ride.
He was named the 2016 Maine Multimedia/ Film Fellow by the Maine Arts Commission.
