The C.C.E started to emphasize editors knowing their role and significance in a project’s success. The C.C.E. organization brings students, directors and producers together, showing them production decisions inevitably influence post-production actions. This impact often goes unnoticed and the C.C.E challenges this when hosting events such as panel discussions, Q&A Screenings, the C.C.E. Annual General Meeting for members, pub nights and their biggest event, the C.C.E. Awards show.
