    EditFest Shortcuts

    January 10, 2011, 12:15 pm
    Get that "EditFest" feeling all year long!
    In 2008, American Cinema Editors (ACE) launched EditFest LA - a unique event, dedicated to the art of film editing . This weekend series of screenings, talks, Q&A sessions and parties proved an entertaining way to shine a spotlight on an amazing and often misunderstood art. A year later, Manhattan Edit Workshop offered to co-produce EditFest NY, the east coast extension of EditFest and the blockbuster editing event of the Summer! Both shows have become wildly popular weekends for both fledgeling and veteran editors as well as film-lovers and enthusiasts. Now in it's third year, EditFest is growing again - with EditFest Short Cuts! These "mini EditFests" are in-depth talks with a single editor, aimed at taking a deeper look into one artist's body of work.
