In 1993 Karryn de Cinque realised the fastest way to get her break as an editor was to apply for funding to direct a short film… and then hire herself to cut it! Michelle’s Third Novel was selected to open the 32nd New York Film Festival, screening before the US premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
Since graduating in 1999 from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, Karryn has worked primarily in documentary, winning numerous awards and receiving multiple nominations from the Australian Screen Editors Association, as well as a 2015 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television (AACTA) nomination for best editing in a Feature Documentary for her work on Tender, directed by Lynette Wallworth.
Karryn has also cut more than 20 short films, and her latest work Nulla Nulla was recently nominated for a Crystal Bear at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival, and an AACTA Award for best short film.
Girl Asleep is Karryn’s first feature drama.
