Telling Stories through Film
Garrison’s documentary, TRASH DANCE, filmed in Austin, is the unprecedented double-winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Documentary at AFI DOCS (Silverdocs) and the Full Frame Film Festival and of SXSW’s Special Jury Recognition at its premiere. From the Austin-American Statesman: “Garrison’s thoughtful, eloquent documentary illuminates the reality that all work matters and has dignity, no matter the invisibility of the labor.” Garrison’s award-winning documentary, THIRD WARD TX, filmed in Houston, premiered at SXSW and aired on PBS.
Garrison’s work has earned him Guggenheim, Rockefeller, NEA and AFI Fellowships, and his films have screened at Sundance, SXSW, Berlin International Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. He is a Professor of Film and Digital Media Production at The University of Texas at Austin. THIRD WARD TX is available on Kanopy from New Day Films.
