Dede Allen and the Art of the Edit at HOME Manchester, Manchester 30 June 2024 Tickets from £5.95 — Book now

A short season of films highlights the work of editor Dede Allen at HOME this June. Across six titles and three decades, Dede Allen and the Art of the Edit showcases the talent and versatility that saw Allen work on a series of landmark films alongside some of biggest Hollywood names of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Rising through the studio ranks from a messenger at Columbia at age 23, to head of post-production at Warner Bros, Allen edited some thirty-two films across her career. Pauline Kael called her work on Bonnie and Clyde (Sun 9 Jun) “the best editing in an American movie in a long time”, while she earned three Academy Award nominations for Best Editing, including one for Sidney Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon (Sun 23 Jun) starring Al Pacino.

Early credits include vintage Paul Newman pool-hall-drama The Hustler which opens the season on Sunday 2 June accompanied by an introduction from HOME and University of Salford’s Andy Willis.

While HOME showcase Allen’s range through screenings of her work as editor on John Hughes’ classic The Breakfast Club (Fri 28 Jun) and a pair of George Roy Hill’s films, Kurt Vonnegut adaptation Slaughterhouse Five (Sun 16 Jun), and classic ice hockey comedy Slap Shot (Sun 30 Jun).

The season is part of HOME’s continued commitment to highlighting the contribution of women to film history.
