The Editor in Cinema: Ability and Responsibility (Workshop)- Matteo Santi



Editors are real life Samurai, calm warriors whose mission is to put their creativity (and clarity of vision) at the Director's service. They are the right hand figure, the confidant, the defeatist, the friend, the technician and the diplomat; whether they are working on a film or a documentary, they have the responsibility of ferrying the director's vision to a safe harbor.



This Workshop will analyze the skills and responsibilities that an Editor must have within a film. It is a panel aimed at aspiring Editors but also for cinema enthusiasts, who want to learn about the different nuances that make up the basis of editing choices in a film.



Matteo Santi, born in Emilia Romagna in 1979, graduated in 2001 at the Academy of Cinema in Bologna. He distinguished himself in 2016, for the editing of "Mine", a film produced by Peter Safran, distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures and in Italy by Eagle Pictures, for which he was nominated for the Silver Ribbons. His name is linked to other projects such as “Rockin1000”, "Ops - the event", "Rwanda" and "Die Mauer ”. In 2020, the thriller “Anja” and “Spore”, starring Valentina Lodovini.
