EditFest London Features World’s Best Editors

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 by Alex Fice

London’s second EditFest is on in London’s Southbank tomorrow.

What is it?

EditFest London returns for its second engagement in the UK, a daylong event featuring leading film and television editors sharing their insights and experiences in the art of editing. EditFest is aimed at professional and aspiring editors, post production team members, students, content creators, production execs, and those who love the art and craft of editing.

Why it matters:

A unique opportunity to hear and meet artists who are at the top of their craft and explore the popular, award-winning movies and television shows in which they play an important role.  EditFest London, produced by American Cinema Editors, is a global event, and as EditFest embarks on another successful year in London, and six in Los Angeles, the event will be taking place in new cities next year, making this year’s event important to attend. This event features interactive conversations, presentations, face-to-face dialogue, Q&A sessions and a cocktail reception.
