Garland Waller is the Director of the Television Graduate Program, an assistant professor, and an award-winning producer-writer-director of nationally syndicated and local television and independent film programs.

No Way Out But One, her second indie feature documentary, won a Silver Award at the Colorado Film Festival and was a selection for the Bare Bones International Film Festival. She also won an Indie, an Accolade, and a Telly award. No Way Out But One, initially a documentary short, was selected for The Unspoken Film Festival on Human Rights. Screenings have taken place in New York, California, Colorado, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Florida, and Washington, DC, to name only a few. The documentary focused on Holly Collins, the first American woman to be granted asylum by the Dutch government on grounds of domestic violence. The goal of No Way Out But One is to expose the failure of America’s family courts to protect battered women and their children. Her chapter “The Yuck Factor” appears in Domestic Violence, Abuse, and Child Custody Legal Strategies and Policy Issues and focuses on the failure of the mainstream media to expose this national scandal.

National awards include Best Social Documentary, NY International Independent Film Festival, GirlFest Indie Award, Award for Media Excellence 8th International Conference on Family Violence, and the Key West Indie Film Fest. Waller’s early awards for television productions include the Grand Prize and the Gold Prize at the International Film Festival of New York, the Iris Award for Best Entertainment, two Ohio State Awards, five New England Emmys and two Action for Children’s Television Awards.
