ACE to Honor Joel Cox and Doug Ibold with Career Achievement Award
After several years working with Butterfly Films he made his way to the West Coast and decided to work exclusively as a film editor which he had learned he loved with his years with Butterfly Films. Don Bellisario was an old friend of his brothers and Ibold and he were friendly. Ibold had just managed to get into the union and Bellisario hired him to edit “Quincy, M.E.” which became his first job in episodic television. Since then he has spent over 40 years working in the industry on some of the longest-running and most successful shows in American television history.
AMERICAN CINEMA EDITORS
AMERICAN CINEMA EDITORS (ACE) is an honorary society of motion picture editors founded in 1950. Film editors are voted into membership on the basis of their professional achievements, their dedication to the education of others and their commitment to the craft of editing.
The objectives and purposes of the AMERICAN CINEMA EDITORS are to advance the art and science of the editing profession; to increase the entertainment value of motion pictures by attaining artistic pre-eminence and scientific achievement in the creative art of editing; to bring into close alliance those editors who desire to advance the prestige and dignity of the editing profession.
ACE produces several annual events including EditFest (a weekend editing festival in the summer), Invisible Art/Visible Artists (annual panel of Oscar® nominated editors), and the ACE Eddie Awards, now in its 62nd year, recognizing outstanding editing in nine categories of film, television and documentaries. The organization publishes a quarterly magazine, CinemaEditor, highlighting the art, craft and business of editing and editors.
