The art and craft of editing documentary films is the topic of the third installment of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' four-part seminar series "Perspectives on Editing," which will be held on Tuesday, October 6, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Academy's Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.

"Perspectives on Editing: Editing for Documentary Films" will be hosted by Academy Film Editors Branch governors Donn Cambern (The Last Picture Show, The Bodyguard) and Mark Goldblatt (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Starship Troopers).

Special guests will include Kate Amend (The Long Way Home, Jimmy Carter Man from Plains), Joe Bini (Little Dieter Needs to Fly, Grizzly Man), William Cartwright (The Making of the President 1960, Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision) and Brian Johnson (Buena Vista Social Club, Fighting for Life). Like in the other installments in the series, the evening will feature film clips and an open discussion between the special guests and members of the audience.

The final session in the series will take place on Wednesday, October 14, and it's titled "Anne Coates: Profile of an Editing Master." The evening will feature a discussion with Anne Coates, who won an Oscar for editing Lawrence of Arabia (1962). Coates has received four additional nominations, for Becket (1964), The Elephant Man (1980), In the Line of Fire (1993) and Out of Sight (1998).

Tickets for each evening of "Perspectives on Editing" are $10 for the general public and $7.50 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. Tickets may be purchased by mail, in person at the Academy during regular business hours or online at www.oscars.org.
