6:00- 6:45PM - Watch some clips
Assuming all is well with the equipment and we have no technical difficulties to solve, we plan on showing clips from movies Ms Allen has edited. This is also to accommodate those of you who get to the Theatre early and don't like staring at a blank screen for 45 minutes.








6:45PM - 7:00PM - "Introducing Dede Allen" -Michael Horton
When one has a career that spans 6 decades and that career consists of editing several of the greatest American films ever made, then it takes 15 minutes to do the introduction. Well, give or take a few minutes









7:00PM - 8:30PM - Conversation with Dede Allen - Dede Allen
Legendary film editor Dede Allen will speak about her extraordinary
career, the craft of editing and show clips from Reds, Bonnie and Clyde, Little Big Man and Slapshot. Michael Horton will play James Lipton.











8:30PM - 9:00PM - Break
This is a chance to hang out and meet and greet one another, badger a few FCP Gurus and let Dede stretch her legs. Snacks and Beer and Wine will be on sale in the lobby. Proceeds go to the Gallery Theater.









8:50PM - 9:50PM - Q and A with Dede Allen - All of you
OK, this is where it gets real fun. There was no way to cover everything we want to know in the first half, so let's try and cover the rest in the 2nd half. This is up to you.
