We are TEMPO, the international Federation of Film Editors Associations. 

Our aim is to bring together editors from around the world.


We provide a platform for film editors organizations, associations, guilds, and their members, to collaborate, to support and inspire each other, and to strengthen the standing of our beloved field of expertise.


The idea for this umbrella organization was born at the 2018 International Film Editors Forum, during the Filmplus Festival – now EDIMOTION – in Cologne, Germany, and TEMPO was founded during the 2019 edition of that festival.


Membership of TEMPO is open to any guild, union, or honorary society that exclusively represents film editors, from any country or continent.

The association aims to:

  • Strengthen the standing of our profession in the audiovisual industry.

  • Lift public awareness of our profession.

  • International Editing Awards.

  • Set international standards for working conditions.

  • Actively promote fairness and equality in diversity policies.

  • Conserve, maintain and develop the spirit of unity and solidarity between editors around the world.

  • Supply a platform for international cooperation and communication among the member organizations.

  • Benefit from each other's experiences on running our organizations.

  • Inspire each other to support and educate our members on creative, social and legal matters.


We call all the associations, guilds, unions and honour societies to share this information about TEMPO and join us in this common dream.
