Allen to receive MPEG award


Warren Beatty will present the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 2008 Fellowship and Service Award to film editor Dede Allen at the MPEG annual board of directors Installation Dinner on Jan. 5, 2008 at the Loews hotel in Santa Monica. Allen editted two of Beatty's films, "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Reds." "The combination of her passionate contribution to the making of a movie, her loving generosity in helping and training others to make movies, and her dedication to perfection puts Dede Allen in a class by herself," Beatty said.
