Edit is a Hungarian American filmmaker who writes and directs films that investigate subjects of great human complexity and social injustice, while making uncompromised comments on the world she lives in. Edit received her Ph.D. in Theoretical and Slavic Linguistics from Princeton University, and currently, she is pursuing an MFA in Film at Ohio University. Making and teaching Film is an organic continuation of her studies in linguistics: both film and language build on structural elements to result in a product, which is universal. Edit acquired her writing and directing experience through working in an array of professional environments, including independent film and television industry in Montreal as well as studying and working in North America and Europe. She has reported on film and jazz festivals as a cultural correspondent for over 15 years.
