About the 90to5 Editing Challenge

The 90to5 Editing Challenge is all about the art & fun of film editing.
We encourage everybody to take part in our competition in order to polish personal editing skills but also to advance the art of the edit in general.

 Cut a 90 minute feature down to 5


We dare you to edit a full feature length movie down to 5 minute
True Edit Award – You create a short film using only the material (audio/visuals) provided by the 90 minute feature without losing the essence of the story!
Creative Edit Award – Or you create a 5 minute edit using different music (or even add a few visuals from another source) and be as imaginative as you can!
