EditFest returns to Gotham

Opportunity to network, sharpen skills

The American Cinema Editor’s EditFest NY, the East Coast version of ACE’s popular EditFest series originally launched in 2008 as ACE EditFest LA, is gearing up for its return to New York City.

Set to kick off June 10 at the Director’s Guild of America Theater, the event is co-produced by Manhattan Edit Workshop and will comprise two days of discussions with top editors from features and TV.

Panels include Editing Animation: Pixar, with “Toy Story 3” editor Ken Schretzmann; and The Lean Forward Moment, moderated by Norman Hollyn.

“It is our goal to present the creative, East Coast filmmaking community with an opportunity to mingle with and learn from the best and the brightest in the industry,” said ACE President Randy Roberts. “We are thrilled to be able to team up with Manhattan Edit Workshop to bring our successful EditFest series to New York once again.”

“The response to last year’s EditFest NY was overwhelming – we doubled attendance and hope to do the same again this year,” says Josh Apter, owner and founder, Manhattan Edit Workshop.

Confirmed panelists and participants include: Steve Audette (“Bush’s War”), Chad Beck (“Inside Job”), Adam Bolt (“Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times”), Sabine Hoffman (“Sex and the City” 1 & 2), Malcolm Jamieson (“Mad Men”), Harry Keramidas (“The Final Season”), Craig McKay (“Silence of the Lambs”), Ken Schretzmann (“Toy Story 3”) and David Zieff (“Metallica – Some kind of Monster”).
