A.C.E. & IMAGO: editing and cinematography in festival-focus

eDIT Filmmaker's Festival continues the successful co-operation with two leading international filmmaker’s organisations A.C.E. (American Cinema Editors) and IMAGO – European Federation of Cinematographers.

The partners contribute high-end presentations on editing and cinematography.  NB: All members of A.C.E. and IMAGO are entitled to 50% rebate on all festival-tickets.

"The objectives and purposes of the AMERICAN CINEMA EDITORS are to advance the art and science of the editing profession - the eDIT filmmaker's festival provides a perfect platform to pursuing these aims", says Randy Roberts, President of ACE. "We especially appreciate the cross-over approach of the festival. It enables us to exchange with film professionals from other areas. This enhances our mutual understanding of what we need to do in co-operation.

Also, the popular German vdw-award (for commercials) will again partner with the Filmmaker's Festival. And for the very first time, the film festivals of Hessen will present a unified shorts program.
