Pete” is based on a true story about gender identity, Little League Baseball, the people who inspire change by trying to be themselves, and the superheroes who allow that change to happen. We meet Pete in 1975 Winter Park, Florida – an 8-year-old with a dream of playing baseball like all the other kids on the cul-de-sac. The thing is, Pete isn’t quite like all the other kids on the team, and the world may not be quite ready yet for a kid like Pete.

Bret Parker, co-founder of Artfarm Productions, is a veteran in the film industry with 27 years under her belt at Pixar Animation Studios. Parker started her career in 1996 and has worked on many films, including the Oscar-winning “Finding Nemo” and “The Incredibles.” Fun Fact: Parker is also the voice of Kari, the babysitter in “The Incredibles,” and if you listen closely, you’ll hear the SAG actor’s voice in other films as well! She is currently Supervising Animator on a project yet to be announced. Outside the studio, she created and directed work for the groundbreaking dance troupe Iluminate, as well as wrote and directed a short animated film about climate change in partnership with the Marine Mammal Center and California College of the Arts. In 2019, along with her wife, Parker directed and produced her first feature length documentary, “Through The Windows,” which premiered at the Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco to a sold-out audience. She continues to bring her unique perspective as a queer female director to the screen with her latest award-winning film, “Pete.”
