Respected film editor Carol Littleton will received this year’s Camerimage Award to an Editor with Unique Visual Sensitivity, during the 26th annual Camerimage film festival of cinematography, which runs Nov. 10-17 in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
Littleton completed almost one-third of her credits with two filmmakers, Lawrence Kasdan and Jonathan Demme, underscoring her belief in the durable editor-director relationship. Her eight films with Kasdan included Body Heat, Silverado, Dreamcatcher and The Big Chill. Her four films with Demme included his 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate and Swimming to Cambodia.
Littleton is perhaps best known for editing Steven Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, for which she was nominated for an Oscar. For television, she edited Mick Jackson’s Tuesdays With Morrie, for which she received an Emmy; and Jay Roach’s political drama All the Way, which garnered an American Cinema Editors Eddies Award.
“As a viewer, Carol Littleton above all appreciates simplicity, something which for some reason has become a hostile idea for countless contemporary filmmakers. As an editor, she simply wants to tell worthwhile stories, both with images and sounds, and with emotions and reflections, therefore she engages herself completely in each story, plot, and character she works with,” said Camerimage in a statement.
