BOSFCPUG presents: "Inside the Cutting Room with Bobbie O'Steen"
Wednesday, November 16, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
For November, we are incredibly honored to continue our collaboration with Emerson College and pleased to offer the first of what will be many evenings with BOSFCPUG in conversation with industry leading filmmakers and also some of our friends within the American Cinema Editors (A.C.E.) - this will continue in December and into 2012, where we are planning to hold several prominent events to bring students, independents, professionals and Hollywood editors together to share conversation about story.
On November 16th, please join BOSFCPUG and renowned author BOBBIE O'STEEN ("Cut to the Chase," "The Invisible Cut") for an in-depth discussion of the editing on Mike Nichols’ THE GRADUATE.
BOBBIE O'STEEN studied film and earned a degree in anthropology at Stanford University. She is an Emmy-nominated film editor and the author of two acclaimed books about editing: Cut to the Chase, based on interviews with her late husband and colleague Sam O'Steen, and The Invisible Cut, which deconstructs classic movie scenes through a cut-by-cut analysis. In the last few years she has hosted a series of events honoring master editors such as Carol Littleton, Craig McKay and Tim Squyres, where they screen footage and have in-depth discussions about their work for such organizations as UCLA Film and Television Archive and 92Y Tribeca; and she moderates panels bi-annually for EditFest LA and EditFest NY. She has also taught graduate film students at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and is a regular contributor to CinemaEditor, Editors Guild Magazine and MovieMaker Magazine.

The Graduate is a 1967 American comedy-drama motion picture directed by Mike Nichols. It is based on the 1963 novel The Graduate by Charles Webb, who wrote it shortly after graduating from Williams College. The screenplay was by Buck Henry, who makes a cameo appearance as a hotel clerk, and Calder Willingham. The film tells the story of Benjamin Braddock (played by Dustin Hoffman), a recent university graduate with no well-defined aim in life, who is seduced by an older woman, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), and then proceeds to fall in love with her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross).
In 1996, The Graduate was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". Initially, the film was placed at #7 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies list in 1998. However, when AFI revised the list in 2007, the film was moved to #17.
Enter the main entrance to The Paramount Center at 559 Washington Street. Go up the elevators to the left and to the 4th floor. There will be front of house staff to greet you at the Bright Family Screening Room.
