RYAN LOGAN (director/editor)
An LA-based film editor who has also directed and written numerous award-winning films garnering notice at over 100 festivals and museums worldwide. Notable screenings include the Chicago International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Shortfest and Seattle International Film Festival (and venues as diverse as the Director’s Guild of America, Lincoln Center, Film Institute and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts). His work has been featured in Indiewire, Movie Maker Magazine, the Chicago Tribune and The LA Times. He focuses a lens on marginalized and frequently overlooked characters, typically branded as outsiders. He often explores these difficult themes through darm comedy and experimentation, inviting the audience to experience “a day in someone else’s shoes”.
