Croatian Editor Nina Rac Edits BAFTA Award Winning Film



Huge achievement for Croatian film editor Nina Rac in London over the weekend…

Zagreb-born Rac was the editor animation short Edmond, which won a BAFTA in the British animated short category at the 69th British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards in London on Sunday.

Edmond, by Nina Gantz, is a story of all-consuming love, told with handmade felt puppets and 2D drawn animation. As he stands alone by a lake, contemplating his options, he goes on a journey backwards through his life, and revisits all his defining moments in search for the origin of his desires. The short has also won several awards at festivals all over the world, including this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Rac, who completed her masters in electrical engineering before switching careers to film editing, moved to London and is carving out a successful career in film-making.
