Based in Montréal, Richard has been editing since the early nineties. He won the Genie Award for Best Editing two years in a row, for The Necessities of Life in 2008 and Polytechnique in 2009. He also won the Jutra Award for Gabrielle (2013) and was nominated for My Internship in Canada (2016), and won a CSA for Two Lovers and a Bear (2017).
As part of this masterclass, Richard will be discussing his work on Polytechnique, War Witch, and Eye on Juliet (which recently won the Best Film at the Venice Film Festival's Giornate degli Autori section)
Join panelists Matthew Hannam, Stephen Philipson, and Andrew Coutts as they discuss the ups and downs of working in the US. As the Canadian and American film industries become more intertwined, what challenges and opportunities arise for Canadian editors wishing to work south of the border? How does the work differ? How is it the same? For those who wish to remain in the land of Mounties and free medicare, what can we learn from our American editor friends? This panel will examine the creative and practical concerns of working down there versus working up here.
