This is the application for the Alliance of Documentary Editors, an all-volunteer collective of professionals working in the documentary editing field.
First please read our mission statement:
"The Alliance of Documentary Editors (ADE) is a working group of documentary film and television editors and assistant editors nationwide that campaigns for best practices within the industry while improving members’ career sustainability. The ADE promotes a better understanding and acknowledgement of the documentary editor’s unique position as storyteller, writer, and artist, as well as technician. We advocate for better working conditions and codified ethical standards, and champion diversity, inclusivity, and mentorship in documentary post-production."
In short, ADE is a place for those in the documentary editing field to come together to share knowledge, strategize collective action and support each other through the challenges of this unique career.
