Cristina Balduin is a Film and TV editor with a passion for storytelling. 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 independent films and commercials before transitioning into high-end television, working for broadcasters such as Netflix, Sky, and NatGeo.
