IDA honors Amend for nonfiction works

The Intl. Documentary Assn. has tapped Kate Amend to receive its inaugural IDA Award for documentary editing.

She will receive the nod at the 21st annual IDA Distinguished Documentary Achievement Awards Gala Benefit at the DGA Theater on Dec. 9. The IDA board of directors created the award to celebrate editors’ careers because of their contributions to the collaborative process of nonfiction filmmaking.

Amend has 25 nonfiction film credits since launching her career during the late 1980s, including two Oscar-winning docu features: “Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport” (2001) and “The Long Way Home” (1998). “Into the Arms of Strangers” also earned Amend the 2001 American Cinema Editors’ Eddie Award for best edited documentary film.
