Edt. Jury

For the second consecutive year, edt. – Audiovisual Editing Professionals Association of Rio de Janeiro – will award the editing of films of the Directors’ Week. The award was created in 2014 as a tribute to Ricardo Miranda, who was not only a great editor and teacher, but also a master for a great number of professionals who continue to develop his ideas on film editing. Uniting generations and reflecting on this important stage in the construction of films, edt. will have this year a jury consisting of Marta Luz, Cezar Migliorin and Mariana Sussekind.
