WHO ARE WE?

British Film Editors (BFE) is a not-for profit honorary society of professional British Film and Television Editors.

BFE was formed by some 40 British Film Editors in 1966. Originally named the Guild of British Film Editors (GBFE), as more television programmes – particularly dramas and drama series – were pre-recorded rather than broadcast live its membership very soon included editors working in television as well. In 2005, when the advance of digital recording and editing meant that very few editors were actually working with film at all, the name was changed to the Guild of British Film and Television Editors. At the same time the motto “Crafting the Moving Image” was added to the logo to reflect these changes. In 2020, the name was changed to British Film Editors to underline that the rapid differentiation in screen culture - from mediums to platforms - is nevertheless rooted in 'motion image'.

The honorary society has always had two main aims: to raise the profile of the craft of editing and to maintain the technical and creative skills of editors working in film and television.
