EDITORS RECOGNITION P E T I T I O N F O R T he American Cinema Editors Board of Directors has been actively pursuing film festivals and awards presentations, domestic and international, that do not currently recognize the category of Film Editing. The Motion Picture Editors Guild has joined with ACE in an unprecedented alliance to reach out to editors and industry people around the world. The organizations listed on the petition already recognize cinematography and/or production design in their annual awards presentations. Given the essential role film editors play in the creative process of making a film, acknowledging them is long overdue. We would like to send that message in solidarity. Please join us as we continue the effort to elevate the perception of editors everywhere. You can help by signing the petition to help get recognition for film editors by asking these organizations to add the Film Editing category to their annual awards: Sundance Film Festival Shanghai International Film Festival, China San Sebastian Film Festival, Spain Byron Bay International Film Festival, Australia Durban International Film Festival, South Africa New York Film Critics Circle New York Film Critics Online National Society of Film Critics We would like to thank the organizations that have recently added the Film Editing category to their Annual Awards: New Orleans Film Festival Tribeca Film Festival Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Film Independent – Spirit Awards Los Angeles Film Critics Association Chicago Film Critics Association Boston Film Festival The International Animated Film Society – Annie Awards Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror – Saturn Awards Please sign our petition at: Now endorsed by the Motion Picture Sound Editors, Art Directors Guild, Cinema Audio Society, American Society of Cinematographers, Canadian Cinema Editors, and Guild of British Film and Television Editors Committee for Creative Recognition
