Join Peabody Award-winner Rebekah Wingert-Jabi as she discusses the process of editing a film for submission to festivals and for consideration by television broadcasters. Rebekah will update the progress of Another Way of Living: The Story of Reston,VA and share some of the excerpts that landed on "the cutting room floor" during the editing process.

Come enjoy a first-hand tour of how it works. http://www.restoncommunitycenter.net/attend-shows-events-exhibits/event-detail/2015/06/02/default-calendar/reston-on-the-cutting-room-floor
