The editing stage can be considered as a rewriting of a film. How do you assemble images to sublimate the reality of the cinematographic narrative? Through this theoretical workshop, you will discover the multiple techniques and components that contribute to the narrative fluidity of a fiction film.
The course will be illustrated by concrete examples taken from the filmography of experienced editor Arthur Tarnowski.

The workshop will be given in French but questions may be asked in English.
