Marc Vives is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and has been editing feature films since 2006. He began his career in documentary, editing the artist portrait The Painter Sam Francis, which remains his only work to have screened at the Louvre. He transitioned into fiction by way of the hybrid film Putty Hill, which won numerous international film festival prizes and was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial. In 2013, he attended the Sundance Director’s Lab as an editor, and was co-nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Editing for Museum Hours. In 2018, The Kindergarten Teacher won the Directing Award at Sundance, and in 2019, Blow The Man Down won Best Screenplay at Tribeca. He has recently returned to documentary, editing episodes for the Netflix series Dirty Money and a forthcoming, yet-to-be-titled Netflix series about the Innocence Project.
Marc has mentored over a dozen projects through IFP's Feature Film Lab, taught editing at The Edit Center, and was an adjunct professor at Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema. He lives with his wife and daughter in Maplewood, NJ.
