Deco Dawson is an international award winning filmmaker from Winnipeg, Canada. His 15 innovative short films remain at times unclassifiable, continually blurring the lines between dramatic, documentary, animation and experimental film, often creating fantastical worlds with miniatures, archival footage, meticulous set design, in-camera effects and grainy, textured filmstock. Dawson is a Canadian Screen Award nominee, and a two-time winner of the Best Short Film Award from the Toronto International Film Festival for his films KEEP A MODEST HEAD in 2012 and FILM(dzama) in 2001, which also won the Best Technical Innovation award at the 2002 Ann Arbor Film Festival. In addition to screening at major festivals worldwide, Dawson has been host to solo retrospectives of his work in France, Spain, USA and Canada.
