The Army Recruiter

The Recruiter Screening in Theaters and on HBO

The Recruiter (formerly titled The Army Recruiter), which was a project of the July/August 2005, September/October 2005, and May/June 2006 six-week classes at the Edit Center, will be screening in several places this summer. It is currently playing at the Cinema Village in New York City, and in June the film will open in the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival. In July, The Recruiter will begin airing on HBO. The film was directed by Macarthur-winner Edet Belzberg and edited by Edit Center alumni Adam Bolt and Chad Beck (who edited the Oscar-nominated documentary No End in Sight).


Two Edit Center Projects in Competition at Sundance

Two of The Edit Center's past class projects will be competing at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008. Frozen River, competing in the narrative category, was directed by Courtney Hunt and edited by TEC instructor Kate Williams (with help from the May 2007 six-week course). Competing in the documentary category is An American Soldier, which was formerly titled The Army Recruiter. Directed by MacArthur-winner Edet Belzberg, An American Soldier was a class project in both 2005 and 2006, and was edited after the class by TEC alums Adam Bolt and Chad Beck.
