A non-fiction film is as designed, constructed and crafted as a fiction film. Filmmaker Andrew Garrison discusses the ideas he is interested in exploring while using constructed interpretations of reality to speak and understand the “real” and the “true.” Garrison will also consider how facility with technique, skill with story, and human connection are three areas that overlap, but are sometimes competing realms.

Andrew Garrison is an independent filmmaker based in Austin, Texas, who works in both documentary and fiction. His most recent film is the documentary feature, TRASH DANCE (2012), winner of several festival awards including Special Jury Recognition at its premiere at SXSW, and the unprecedented winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Documentary at both the AFI Silverdocs Film Festival and the Full Frame Film Festival. His previous films include the documentary THIRD WARD TX (2007), and the narrative triptych THE WILGUS STORIES (2000), both of which premiered at SXSW and aired on PBS, and the award-winning shorts, FAT MONROE (1990) and NIGHT RIDE (1994). Garrison’s work has earned him Guggenheim, Rockefeller, NEA and AFI Fellowships. 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 an Associate Professor of Film and Digital Media Production at The University of Texas at Austin and the Audio Area Head.
