Today the Sundance Institute and the Karen Schmeer Film Editing Fellowship hosted the inaugural gathering of fiction and non-fiction editors at the Sundance Film Festival's Art of Editing Brunch, where we announced a new partnership between the Documentary Film Program partnership and the Fellowship, highlighted this year's Sally Menke Editing Fellow and celebrated the achievements of all editors premiering work at Sundance.
Editor Joe Bini (Grizzly Man, We Need to Talk About Kevin) gave the keynote address, including a hilarious and all too true "cautionary allegorical fable" about what it's like to be an editor. It's called "The Serf." His full speech be read here.
