Ricardo Miranda edt. Award – Invention Editing (short and feature)

For the third 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 numerous professionals who continue to develop his ideas on film editing. Reflecting on this important stage on the making of a film, edt. will have this year a jury consisting of Natara Ney, Karen Akerman and Rodrigo Lima.
