At last Tuesday's annual Sundance Film Festival Art of Editing Reception, Editor Jean Tsien was presented with the Mentorship Award. The list of stories of her generosity and the encouragement she has given to other editors was too long to share in its entirety on stage. She is an inspiration to us all.
Editor/Director Pedro Kos delivered a heartfelt and bracingly honest keynote which addressed the creativity-killing pressures editors face in today's documentary making environment. HIs full speech is here. Please read and share widely! He is speaking to editors, directors, producers, and to the field as a whole. Thank you, Pedro!
As always, it was a pleasure for us to co-host the event with Kristin Feeley and the Sundance Institute DFP.
