Women in Factual TV

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

On November 11, 2020, British Film Editors hosted a special event where we heard from six experienced editors in the world of factual TV.

We celebrated the work of Zeb Achonu, Renée Edwards, Sunshine Jackson, Genevieve Krom, Luisa María Martínez Arcaraz and Mel Quigley. We also gave them an opportunity to talk about their experiences in the field of factual editing in the UK and around the globe, and in the industry as women in a heavily male populated arena.


As part of the event, they shared details of organisations relevant to women editors:
