1. Synopsis
On the train home from the Easter Show, an over-tired little girl is hyped-up by a stranger, who plays a game of peekaboo with her, until her mother begins to feel disturbed by the interest he’s showing. A short time later, the girl disappears in a carpark and her desperate mother searches. A glimpse of the man from the train fires her imagination, with devastating consequences.

2. Production
The film was shot on a Canon 5D DSLR with Canon 24-70mm, 70-200mm and 16-35mm lenses, and a Zacuto shoulder rig with an onboard monitor. DOP Simon Chapman chose to use zoom lenses over prime lenses in order find shots very quickly, because of the very young actors in the cast. All the interiors were shot at 1000ASA, which meant they could be shot primarily with available light.
The filmmakers raised the films entire $5.500 budget through crowd-funding online.
The film was finished in May 2011.
Peekaboo was filmed on location in Sydney, Australia, over three days in June 2010.

3. Reception
Tom Goodwin from the Co-Op Post wrote, "Short, direct and surprisingly brutal in its finale, Peekaboo stood head and shoulders above most of the other entries on display."
Matt Riveria gave Peekaboo 4/5 stars in the 2011 Sydney Film Festival Critics Poll.
