Agnieszka Liggett film and tv editor

ABOUT

I'm a London based drama and documentary editor. 

Films I’ve worked on have screened in festivals all over the world and gone on to win numerous awards. I've worked on 14 feature films, TV dramas, documentaries and short films that have been nominated for PALME D'OR (‘After Tomorrow’ –Best Short Film) as well as an OSCAR (‘Badgered’- Best Short Film, Animated) won EMMY ('Horror of Homs' -short documentary) and feature film 'Obey' won BAFTA Cymru breakthrough and short documentaries about Cambridge Analytica won many awards including BAFTA and EMMY
Also short film 'Gone' has been nominated for BEST EDITING in Underwire Festival.

I'm currently editing three episodes of a comedy drama series for Sky - FUNNY WOMAN based on a Nick Hornby's book, starring Gemma Arterton, Rupert Everett and Tom Bates. Just before that I did a film for Sky Cinema for their festive season - LAST TRAIN TO CHRISTMAS starring Michael Sheen, Nathalie Emmanuel and Cary Elwes.
In the last year I also worked on a film BREAKFAST IN BEIRUT (sill in postproduction) and  film LA SALAMANDRE, a French/Brazilian co-oproduction which premiered in Venice Film Festival, the film was also nominated for Best Film in Sao Paulo Festival. My other recent credits include two episodes of the last series of DOCTOR  WHO, feature films SCARBOROUGH, OBEY and the critically acclaimed CROWHURST. I also recently finished a documentary HUNTING THE PEOPLE SMUGGLERS for ITV - Exposures which has been nominated for RTS award . 

I graduated with an MA in editing from the National Film and Television School and have been working in the industry for many years. Before I got interested in editing I studied drama in National Polish Film, Theatre and TV School in Lodz.

I edit fiction as well as documentaries and commercial projects. I believe working across formats, genres and styles opens your mind to different possibilities. But I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and I work with the director to tell the story in the best possible way. Coming from an acting background I think my strength is finding the best performance for the story and emotional nuances in documentary rushes.

Although I'm based in London I'm available for work worldwide, people call me Aggi and I always look forward to new challenges.
