EditFest Reviews

“I went to last year’s Edit Fest in LA and was blown away on how great it was…. Just being able to talk to other editors and make connections, alone is worth the price of admission. Where else can you get this? And it’s for 2 days! What you get from this event makes the price virtually free. I look forward to many others.” Saleem Aziz, editor on The X Factor
