Academy to Salute Film Editor Dede Allen

Directors Sidney Lumet and Arthur Penn and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will come together to salute three-time Oscar-nominated film editor Dede Allen on Tuesday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York City.

The Academy members-only event, hosted by Peter Travers, senior film editor at Rolling Stone, will highlight her career through film clips and feature a conversation with Allen and directors Lumet, Penn, and film editors Jerry Greenberg, Richard Marks and Craig McKay.

In a career spanning nearly 50 years, Allen began as a messenger at Columbia Pictures. Her first editing job came in 1959 in Robert Wise’s “Odds against Tomorrow.” She went on to edit Robert Rossen’s “The Hustler” and Elia Kazan’s “America America.”

In 1967, she edited Penn’s “Bonnie and Clyde,” which launched an editing style that has been imitated ever since. It made Allen one of the most sought-after professionals in the industry.

Allen received Academy Award® nominations for her work on “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Reds” (shared with McKay) and “Wonder Boys,” and she has represented film editors on the Academy Board of Governors for nine terms through July of this year.

The Academy Theater at Lighthouse International is located at 111 East 59th Street in New York City. Doors open at 7 p.m.
