Away from the major tradeshow cycle, there are any number of smaller events that have grabbed themselves deserved places on the calendar and offer something a bit more niche and perhaps a bit more special too. New York's Sight, Sound & Story this weekend is one of them.
The Karen Schmeer Film Editing Fellowship has been created to assist editors in developing their talent and furthering their career aspirations. In conjunction with American Cinema Editors (ACE) and other partners, the Fellowship offers a wide array of opportunities for promising film editors, in both documentary and fiction.
