AFT Awards: Best Film Editing

This is the tenth category of the 14th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. I’m drawing only from films that were either released or playing at a film festival in the 2020 calendar year. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Honorable mentions:
Black Bear, Corpus Christi

Charm City Kings
Alice Junior
I Carry You with Me

The winner:
Promising Young Woman (Frédéric Thoraval) tied together a series of memorable moments into an outrageously effective and wildly thrilling rollercoaster ride.

Other nominees:
Ema (Sebastián Sepúlveda)
Time (Gabriel Rhodes)
The Killing of Two Lovers (Robert Machoian)
The Trial of the Chicago 7 (Alan Baumgarten)
