“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for putting on EditFest last week (London, 2016) . I was part of the National Film School cohort and we were well and truly spoiled. Events like these help bridge the gap for those starting out, giving us access to the major industry players.” Conor Meechan – Editor, Creative Scotland Scholar `
“This is a wonderful resource for editors to share with other aspiring, working, or just curious editors their story and their work. One of the great things about this event is that it’s a great opportunity for networking or just being able to converse with editors whose work you admire. It’s a real big deal. It’s like a actor meeting their favorite actor/actress or a musician meeting their favorite musician. This event needs to continue every year it’s kind of like an editors own Comic-Con...” Saleem
