Mar Garvey

Marie-Therese Garvey is a multi-award-winning documentary producer with over a decade’s worth of experience in the independent documentary film landscape. The majority of Mar’s work has been on international co-productions, work that has taken her everywhere from the Norwegian Arctic to the Saharan Desert, to most recently Chicago via Milwaukee. Mar brings a wealth of experience with a focus on projects that have big aspirations and small budgets. 

As someone who is intimately familiar with all aspects of documentary filmmaking – from story and budget to picture lock and distribution – Mar is perfectly positioned to offer tailored support and guidance to Kartemquin filmmakers from story development all the way through to distribution.

As a passionate woodworker and road tripper, in her downtime, you’ll find Mar in the workshop or on the road.
