    Joe Walker, ACE to Keynote at EditFest LA

    August 1, 2019, 12:50 pm
    American Cinema Editors Event Returns on August 24

    EditFest LA, the day-long celebration of the art and craft of editing, is set for August 24, 2019 at Walt Disney Studios’ Frank Wells Theater. EditFest brings the world’s top editors to the stage to share their insights and experiences.  

    Joe Walker, the Oscar®, BAFTA, and Eddie nominated editor, will cap an outstanding lineup when he joins author Bobbie O’Steen in an “Inside the Cutting Room” conversation that will explore his remarkable career.

    London-born Walker is a celebrated editor who originally trained as a classical composer. In the past five years, Walker has been nominated four times by the ACE Eddie Awards, winning for Arrival.  He is a two-time Academy Award® nominee (12 Years a Slave, Arrival) and three-time BAFTA Award nominee.  He has forged notable partnerships with directors Steve McQueen and Denis Villeneuve over the course of his career. Walker has collaborated with McQueen on four films including the director’s debut feature Hunger (2008), Shame (2011), Widows (2018), and he edited the Academy Award® best picture winner 12 Years a Slave (2013).

    His work with Villenueve includes three back-to-back features. Their collaboration began with Sicario (2015), then Arrival (2016), which earned him his second Oscar® and BAFTA nominations and his first ACE Eddie Award win. He cut Blade Runner 2049 (2017) for which he received BAFTA and ACE Eddie Award nominations. He is currently at work on Villeneuve’s highly anticipated Dune.

    In 2010 Walker cut the acclaimed crowdsourced documentary feature Life in a Day for Academy Award® winning director Kevin Macdonald and producer Ridley Scott.  Walker edited the film from over 4,500 hours of footage submitted by tens of thousands of YouTube users around the world, shot in a single day to shape the documentary time capsule which debuted at Sundance in 2011.

    Walker learned his craft in the BBC’s Film Department at Ealing Studios where he worked on numerous British television series including Jonathan Creek and The Lakes before moving into the features Brighton Rock, Harry Brown starring Michael Caine and Rupert Wyatt’s The Escapist. 

    Walker received his B.A. in music from the University of York.  The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has played his music live in Trafalgar Square and he wrote the score for the BBC/HBO drama Dirty War. 

    Osteen is a New York-based writer and film historian and author (The Invisible Cut and Making the Cut at Pixar).

    The schedule for EditFest LA features an outstanding lineup of talented editors in panel discussions that offer attendees a rare opportunity to hear first-hand about their experiences, ask questions and mingle with some of the most creative talents in the industry.
