Virginia Katz

VIRGINIA KATZ (Editor) began her career in editing when she spent the summer working for her father, Sidney M. Katz, an award winning editor best known for his work on “Diary of a Mad Housewife.” Working for her father inspired Virginia to pursue a career in editing. She moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s, working on small independent films, larger studio pictures, and television movies and series. Whether exploring human sexuality, martial arts, the Queen of England or the Frankenstein within us, the films Katz has edited have always been provocative and challenging
