CCE issues solidarity statement with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA

CCE issues solidarity statement with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA

The CCE would like to express their support of WGA and SAG-AFTRA as they strike in pursuit of fair contracts from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

Writers and performers deserve to share in the success of the work they do for major Hollywood studios and billion dollar streaming corporations. They should not fear that through AI, their work will be repurposed in the future without consent or proper compensation.

In line with our mission to represent and meet the needs of our post-production community, the CCE supports efforts of all film and television workers to lead successful careers through fair engagement. The entire business model has been changed by streaming, internet distribution, AI, and so must the compensation to those who are the core of our screen-based stories.

We stand in solidarity with WGA and SAG-AFTRA members.

Since then he has worked with directors including Rex Bromfield, Mark Lester, Yves Simoneau, Robert Longo, Daniel Petrie Jr., Sturla Gunnarson, Norman Jewison, Stephen Silver, Henry Sellick, Nathan Morlando, Miranda de Pencier and Viggo Mortensen.

He collaborated with director David Cronenberg on a total of nineteen films, for which he received nine nominations for Genie Awards for Excellence in Film Editing and four awards for DEAD RINGERS (1989), CRASH (1996), EXISTENZ (2000) and EASTERN PROMISES (2007).

Career Achievement Award

Jean-Marc Vallée

Jean-Marc Vallée (1963-2021) was a Canadian filmmaker, film editor, and screenwriter. After studying film at the Université de Montréal, Vallée went on to make a number of critically acclaimed short films, including STÉRÉOTYPES, LES FLEURS MAGIQUES, and LES MOTS MAGIQUES.

His debut feature, BLACK LIST, was nominated for nine Genie Awards, including nods for Vallée’s direction and editing. His fourth feature film, C.R.A.Z.Y., received further critical acclaim. Vallée’s follow-up, THE YOUNG VICTORIA, garnered strong reviews and received three Academy Award nominations.

His sixth film, CAFÉ DE FLORE, was the most nominated film at the 32nd Genie Awards. Vallée’s next films, the American dramas DALLAS BUYERS CLUB and WILD continued this acclaim and the former earned him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Film Editing and Best Picture.

Vallée ventured into television by executive producing and directing two projects BIG LITTLE LIES and SHARP OBJECTS. For the former, he won an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special.

Vallée was a keen collaborator in the edit suite, with editing credits on many of his own projects, often under pseudonyms that played on his initials.

He fought for two main things on his projects. Firstly, he stipulated that he did not wish to work before 9am or after 6pm. Secondly, he always wanted a good music budget, as he believed that music was at the centre of good storytelling.

2021 CCE Awards Lifetime Award and Career Award Announcement

Lifetime Achievement and Career Achievement Award - 2021 Press Release

Lifetime Achievement Award

Michel Arcand, CCE

2021 CCE Awards Michel Arcand, CCE Lifetime Achievement Recipient

The CCE is thrilled to announce the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2021 — Michel Arcand, CCE. For over 40 years, Michel’s work has elevated the craft of picture editing within Canada and beyond. His continued contributions to the editing community as a mentor and fierce advocate for editors have been immeasurable. The CCE will proudly present this honour to Michel virtually at the 11th Annual CCE Awards on June 3rd, 2021.

Michel Arcand’s career as an editor has spanned more than 40 years, earning him a unique place in the Canadian cinema community amongst the artists and professionals whose careers he has watched emerge and mature.

He has even guided—and continues to guide—some of our greatest filmmakers: Léa Pool, Jean-Claude Lauzon, Pierre Falardeau, Robert Ménard, Charles Binamé, Chloé Robichaud, and Sébastien Pilote, to name but a few.

Michel Arcand is part of that elite group of artisans and creators whose reputation transcends borders. His work, too, is internationally recognized, with movies like TOMORROW NEVER DIES: JAMES BOND #18, SUNSHINE, and THE SIXTH DAY being enjoyed by hundreds of thousands around the world.

Generous with his time and wealth of experience, he is a founding member of the Comité des Treize, an independent group whose mission is to unite editors of all stripes to promote the field and restore its prestige.

Arcand has long been a freelancer, which likely fuels his drive to ensure better working conditions not just for himself, but also for his fellow editors. His mission to support his community led him to sit on the Board of Directors of the Academy of Canadian Cinema. He has been on the Board of Directors of the Alliance of Image and Sound Technicians (AQTIS Local Section 514 IATSE) since 2006.

A man of principle, he cares deeply about collective values and ensuring equity for all roles in production. To that end, he is an advocate of a strong, unified organization to represent those roles and ensure that investments are made in professional development and training the next generation of creators.

Career Achievement Award

Jane Tattersall

2021 CCE Awards Jane Tattersall Career Achievement Recipient

The CCE is delighted to announce the recipient of the Career Achievement Award for 2021 — Jane Tattersall. This award is presented to a non-editor who has shown great support for Canadian editors and the editorial profession over the course of their career. Jane has been a fixture in the Canadian post-production industry for over 30 years. Her enormous support for Canadian filmmakers, from our most recognized artists to first-time storytellers, has fostered incredible growth of talent across our industry. The CCE will proudly present this honour to Jane virtually at the 11th Annual CCE Awards on June 3rd, 2021.

Jane Tattersall’s career in sound began during a rainstorm. A graduate of Queen’s University (philosophy), her first job in film was as a researcher/writer on a BBC/TVO documentary series. When the picture editor added the rumble of thunder to an otherwise merely beautiful landscape scene, it was love at first sound.

Ask Jane about her success over 30 years and she attributes it to her luck of being mentored by some of the best sound editors and mixers in the business. Great filmmakers such as Jaco van Dormael, Bill Forsyth, Deepa Mehta, David Cronenberg, and Istvan Szabo contributed to her education.

Jane built relationships with Canadian filmmakers like Clement Virgo, Sarah Polley, Richie Mehta, and Mike McGowan. Jane’s passion for sound excellence and hard work helped this next generation of filmmakers take the stage at the Oscars, at Cannes, in Toronto and at film festivals around the world.

Jane’s work has taken her to studios beyond Canada, including stints in Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, London, LA, Skywalker, and New York. Numerous credits, nominations and awards followed and today Jane counts over 170 credits (film and television), and over 100 nominations and awards. Jane’s recent sound supervising includes THE HANDMAID’S TALE, THE NORTH WATER and 13 MINUTES.

EDITCON 2021 is presented under the theme of Shifting World, Shifting Industry.

It’s been a year of unprecedented change. Covid-19 has impacted every aspect of our lives and the Black Lives Matter movement led the call for racial justice globally. Our industry is seeing a push to achieve racial equity and inclusion, both in front and behind the camera. As storytelling shifts so does distribution. With cinemas shuttered, and festivals online, movie goers have little choice but to turn to streaming services to fulfill their viewing habits.

As editors, our working lives have followed suit. More of us are working from home or remotely than ever before. Will the shifts in distribution, from cinemas to straight-to-streaming have an effect on budgets? How does working remotely impact the creative and technical process, and will it change how we work post-pandemic? How can we make post production equitable? EditCon 2021 will create a space to reconnect and explore the ways in which our professional lives and the industry have changed.

Partnering with Nordest Studio and their new platform Neme.TV, we are creating a unique and interactive conference experience.
