A NETWORK THAT LASTS FAR LONGER THAN SIX WEEKS 

Getting started in the film world can be intimidating, but graduates of our six-week program have an edge. You'll leave with:

  • A professional editor's reel
  • A real credit on their class films
  • A network of fellow students and teachers (Because most jobs come through word of mouth)
  • Access to our alumni e-group, an online resource for tech questions, career advice, and job listings
  • And most importantly: Experience editing real-world projects

AN UNPARALLELED RECORD OF SUCCESS

The best evidence we can offer that our approach works is the success of our students. They've been nominated for editing prizes at Sundance, the Independent Spirit Awards, and the Emmys. The editors of How to Survive a Plague (Oscar Nominee 2013), If a Tree Falls (Oscar Nominee 2012), and Inside Job (Oscar Winner 2011) are all Edit Center graduates.

The community of editors and filmmakers who circle in and out of the Edit Center provided incredible support to me as I started looking for work. Within a month or so I was interning, then assisting, and finally working as the lead editor on great projects.
