Originally from Italy, Cristina’s career began in Barcelona, where she attended the MA in Film Editing at the prestigious Barcelona National Film School (ESCAC). In 2015 she moved to London, where she initially edited commercials, before transitioning into independent documentaries and films.

Cristina is drawn to imaginative narratives and stories aimed at feeding curiosity. With ten years of experience under her belt, Cristina’s editing portfolio reflects her versatility, spanning from spy shorts and dramas to cinematic documentaries and experimental films.

Recent credits as lead editor include ‘Ode,’ a short for BBC2 about youth empowerment, ‘Beautiful in the Morning,’ a coming-of-age indie feature winner of the Sochi Special Jury Prize, and ‘The Reveal,’ the inspiring story of resilience of a paraplegic veteran. Cristina’s work has been awarded at festivals worldwide such as Open Toronto and the London Int’l Motion Picture Awards. She was also nominated for best editing at Southampton Film Festival for My Baby Shot Me Down, a Tarantino-esque film about domestic violence.
