Director Biography - Candi Garrett

Candi Garrett is a visual storyteller that truly believes in the old saying, "actions speak louder than words." She creates implicit subtext in her films through the use of body language, music, lighting, etc. to create layers of meaning. Her deep understanding of the use of visual cues allows her to intuitively communicate moods and emotions that allow the story to unfold seamlessly.

Her most recent short film, Suga Water, won the Best of Festival award at the Black Women Film Summit Festival in Atlanta, GA. She has received much praise for digging deeper below the surface to bring that story to life.

In her free time, Candi enjoys exploring different cultures and trying new things. She is very adventurous and looks forward to the day when she can travel and explore the world.
