ACE taps ‘Wings’ Hirsch new prexy

First woman to top editors' org

The American Cinema Editors have named veteran editor Tina Hirsch president, marking the first time in its 50-year history that a woman has headed the organization.

Hirsch, currently one of three editors on NBC’s “The West Wing,” will serve a two-year term. Her credits over the past 20 years include the pilot of “Party of Five,” the miniseries “A Will of Their Own” and features including “Dante’s Peak,” “Honey I Blew Up the Kid,” “Delirious,” “Gremlins,” “Twilight Zone: the Movie,” “Death Race 2000” and “Eat My Dust.”

“I look forward to continuing the work of ACE, to make both the industry and the public aware of the significant creative contribution made by editors in the filmmaking process,” she said.

Hirsch has been a member of ACE, an honorary society of motion picture editors, since 1990. She had been serving as vice president and named Eric Sears to serve in that post.

“It’s really wonderful to have a woman president,” said Jenni McCormick, ACE’s managing director. “Tina is the kind of president who will make positive changes.”

Other members elected included Chris Cooke as secretary and Janet Ashikaga, Allan Holzman, Doug Ibold and Howard Smith as directors. Ed Abroms remains treasurer with Dann Cahn, Lori Coleman, Alan Heim and Randy Roberts remaining as directors.
