Sometimes The Sequel Is Better Than The Original
EditFest NY, the east coast version of American Cinema Editor’s successful EditFest series, launched last June at The Director’s Guild Theater inManhattan is returning June 11-12, 2010. EditFestNY is presented by American Cinema Editors(ACE) and Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop). Over the course of the weekend, EditFestNY will present some of the best known and highly regarded east coast film editors who turned out to mingle, mentor, and present. Last year's event kicked off with an industry insider’s view of how to break into the editing business. The panel was followed by an opening night gala, a wall-to-wall party where panelists from every EditFest NY panel mingled with rapt attendees. The second day of panels of editors from genres including television, documentary, comedy and feature films.
This years event looks to be even bigger and better. Over two tightly-programmed days, attendees - including professional editors, production executives, network and studio staff, fledgling assistants and content creators - will participate in sharply planned, targeted panels and extensive Q&A sessions. They’ll listen to, learn from and engage with the most respected, award winning editors of feature films and television. Attendees, VIPs, sponsors and panelists will also mingle at the highly anticipated opening night reception.
Oscar winners. Oscar nominees. Emmy nominees. Emmy winners. Comedy Editors. Box Office mega-hit editors. Dramatic editors. Action editors. They’ll all be at EditFest NY - interacting with an audience of working professionals, motivated students and rising stars who have embraced EditFest NY as a key learning opportunity.
