Welcome to EditCon 2021!

The Canadian Cinema Editors is pleased to present EditCon 2021, the fourth annual conference on the art of picture editing, as a two-day online conference on Saturday, February 20th and Sunday, February 21, 2021.

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.

In addition to fantastic panels featuring both Canadian and international guests, there will be a series of breakout rooms, which are limited-capacity panels where a smaller audience allows for more intimate conversation and questions, and for tech demonstrations from industry experts.

Moving beyond zooms, we’re leveraging new technologies to create unique social networking experiences. We’ll have games, raffles, and more to make this event more than just another webinar.
