Award-winning director, artist editor and producer Thom Zimny will lead a Masterclass for filmmakers in Auckland in August. Known for his award-winning documentaries, Zimny will take filmmakers inside his process from the research phase through to the edit, with special focus on the edit process. Works discussed will include his film The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley: The Searcher. If you go along, it would be helpful if you have seen The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash at NZIFF beforehand (Tuesday 30 July or Wednesday 31 July). The Masterclass is part of the New Zealand International Film Festival 2019, and is run by the Directors & Editors Guild of New Zealand (DEGNZ) on behalf of NZIFF.
