Edit Fest NY took place last month at the Director’s Guild of America offices here. The conference was attended by editors, assistant editors, directors and producers looking to expand their knowledge base as well as the forms of media they work in.
“This year's EditFest hopes to bring the audience into the editing room for an insider’s view of what happens during the post process,” says Manhattan Edit Workshop founder Josh Apter. “What's special about any EditFest is the exposure it provides to the creativity behind such an important part of moviemaking. So few people actually get to learn the craft directly from experienced editors.”
