This workshop focuses on the technical and logistical aspects of the editing room on projects that still shoot and finish on film. We will talk about what it takes for the handful of filmmakers who are firmly committed to release their work on 35mm, 70mm and IMAX film formats and why celluloid needs to remain alongside the digital image.


William Fletcher has worked in the motion picture industry since 1980 and has been an assistant film editor for more than 34 years. In addition to his work as an assistant editor, William has also held the role of editor, additional editor and associate editor.

Mermaids, Snow Falling on Cedars, Peter Pan, The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar and The Hateful Eight are a few of the films William has worked on throughout his career and most recently has completed work on Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Phantom Thread.
