Amy Glickman Brown
The Documentary Award - The Green Girl - USA
  

Amy Glickman Brown
Editor - Writer
 
Amy Glickman Brown is the recipient of TheWIFTS Documentary Award for Editing. Her tight editing of The Green Girl, a documentary on the life and career of Susan Oliver, is a testament to her skills to bring a multi-layered character and the subject to almost tangible life.

A North Miami Beach, Florida native, Amy Glickman Brown was always involved in art, whether dancing competitively or attending a performing arts camp in the Catskills of New York every summer. Glickman Brown would find excuses to make videos for any and all projects in school and often made music videos or short films for fun with her friends.

Amy's career in film took a serious turn when she was accepted to a TV and Film magnet high school. There, she was introduced to a switcher and an early non-linear editing program, and she revelled in being able to use them daily.

Accepted into NYU's Tisch School of the Arts for Film and Television in 2001, like most film students, she enrolled wanting to write and direct. However, Amy quickly fell in love with editing once she realized it was, in fact, the culmination of those two interests, and has quite an impactful role.

Glickman Brown interned extensively at companies like Oscilloscope and many post-production facilities, solidifying her desire to edit for a living. She attended FAMU in Prague, Czech Republic for a semester, where she continued her education in film and television production. During her senior year at NYU, Amy studied under Sam Pollard (When the Levees Broke, 4 Little Girls) who encouraged her to pursue editing as a career. Amy Glickman Brown has never looked back.

Her passion lies in documentaries, and in the past few years she has made a concerted effort to focus on this genre. Within this cinematic expression, Amy feels she is able to be more creatively fulfilled while utilizing her storytelling ability, including the development of characters and moments, more fully.

For the past decade, Amy has been a freelance editor for both narrative and documentary films, as well as television programs, in New York City and Los Angeles. Amy's work has appeared on many networks, including Showtime, PBS, NBC/Universal, ABC, IFC, AMC, and BET. Her films have screened extensively on the festival circuit, both domestically and internationally, winning awards at Big Sky Documentary Festival, Slamdance, San Diego Film Festival, Chicago Comedy Film Festival, and many others.

Her newest film, Never Get Tired, is a documentary feature about the band Bomb the Music Industry!, who redefined DIY punk for the digital age.
