The Meet the Editors event is geared toward students, emerging filmmakers and others with an interest in the world of documentary filmmaking. At an informal gathering, attendees will be able to engage and network with leading film editors in the documentary sphere.

It will be moderated by Detroit Free Press executive video producer, Brian Kaufman, director and editor of “Coldwater Kitchen,” the festival’s opening night film.
