Fest Film Lab will hold a film editing workshop in October, with Oscar-winning film editor, Chris Dickens
In 1990, Chris Dickens graduated from the Bournemouth Film School. He began his filmmaking career as a film and linear editing assistant in television documentaries at Channel 4, and the BBC. During this time, he began to cut comedies, and later crossed over to cutting dramas.
While working on the TV series Spaced, Dickens developed a relationship with writer-director, Edgar Wright, and went on to edit his first feature film, the cult hit SHAUN OF THE DEAD. Other features edited by Chris Dickens include GONE, HOT FUZZ, GOAL! THE DREAM BEGINS, and SEED OF CHUCKY.
It was his work on the Best Picture Oscar®-winner and globally recognised, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, that truly stamped Chris Dickens’ signature in the world of editing.
He’s the recipient of a ‘triple crown’ of editing awards – the Academy Award® for Film Editing, BAFTA Award for Best Editing, and the American Cinema Editors Award for Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) – for his work on SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
