Littleton served as president of the Motion Picture Editors Guild from 1988-91, editor representative from 1992-93 and VP from 1994-2001 and from 2005-07. She’s also been a member of the board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and on the board of the American Cinema Editors.

Littleton was nommed for an Oscar on “E.T.” and has worked on seven films with Lawrence Kasdan, including “Body Heat,” “The Big Chill” and “Grand Canyon,” and five with Jonathan Demme, including his latest documentary, “Bob Marley: Stay With the Rhythm.”

Littleton is currently editing “The Rum Diary,” written and directed by Bruce Robinson.
