Two-time Oscar Nominated Film Editor (“King’s Speech,” “American Beauty”) Tariq Anwar gave a very exciting and informative talk about this career and the art and craft of Film Editing last week in Manhattan. In conjunction with the enterprising Manhattan Edit Workshop, who annually hosts EditfestNY, the two day Film Editors Fest that attracts the likes of three time-Oscar winner Thelma Schoonmaker and many,many other industy professionals.

Florence Gould Hall, part of the Alliance Francais on E.59th St., was packed with film editors, professionals, students and cinephiles galore, as Anwar, 66, gave them the very exciting benefit of his lifetime in the film business. And what a life in the editing room it’s been!
