    EditCon 2023: Shaping Memories

    EditCon 2023: Shaping Memories

    Documentary has the power and versatility in exploring urgent social subject matters, yet it can also embrace an intimate first-person narrative, or even become an experimentation of cinematic craftsmanship.
    In this episode we invited the editors from three critically acclaimed Canadian documentaries. Whether it’s the sensory and cinematic collaboration between a filmmaker and a naturalist on Sable Island (GEOGRAPHIES OF SOLITUDE), the eye-opening testimony from the Coloured Hockey League about the untold history of racism in ice hockey (BLACK ICE) or the heart-wrenching revisit of her older brother’s death in BACK HOME, each of these films was made with powerful bravery and is sublime in its own way.

    EditCon 2023: Cutting Through the Noise

    The arrangement of moving pictures is referred to as cinematic language. But it is the skillful combination of picture and sound that transports the audience into a story. Strong visual and audio storytelling immerses the viewer into a world where dragons fly through the sky in HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. It makes our worst nightmares come true in the dreadful depths of the Upside Down in STRANGER THINGS. Paula Fairfield, Craig Henighan, Katie Halliday and Siân Fever share their process working on these phenomenal shows.

Knowledgeable hosts having great, in depth conversations with editors. Focused on Canadian cinema but worth listening to regardless of whether you’re in Canada or not.
