TEMPO is a federation that connects associations of film editors from all over the world. Established in 2019, our fast-growing organization currently has 35 members from North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania, thus connecting over 8000 film and TV editors worldwide.

With this great connection, we try to inspire and support each other by sharing our experiences and knowledge. We organize and promote courses and lectures for editors and assistants and support new talent. We help each other in legal, social and equality matters by raising standards worldwide.

Using our network within the film industry, we also actively promote the art and craft of film editing by organizing masterclasses that can be joined and enjoyed by anyone who is interested in storytelling.
