British Independent Film Awards BIFA

Celebrating 20 years of the best British Independent Film

Emma E. Hickox, a.c.e.

Emma’s background is rooted firmly in the film business; she has followed in her mother Anne V Coates’ (Lawrence of Arabia, The Elephant Man, Erin Brokovich) distinguished footsteps as an editor and her father was cult film director Douglas Hickox (Theatre Of Blood, Entertaining Mr Sloane, Zulu Dawn). She began her editing career in Los Angeles working as an assistant and 2nd editor on films such as Bird On A Wire, The Hard Way and Mr Jones. She started cutting independently in 1992 and has not stopped since then. In 2001 she decided to return to the UK and continue her cutting career in the creative haven of the British film industry. She is on the Advisory Committee for the British Independent Film Awards and gives talks about editing as well as continuing to cut both features and TV. Her credits include: The Boat That Rocked, Becoming Jane, Rock of Ages, Blue Crush, The Edge Of Love, Kinky Boots, and The Jacket.
