Karen Schmeer memorial


There will be a memorial tomorrow at Boston University for Karen Schmeer, the great local film editor who died tragically last January just shy of her 40th birthday.

It takes place in Room 101, the BU College of Communication, 640  Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, starting a 6 p.m. with a  gathering of friends and family. At 6:30 p.m. people will share their memories of Karen,  and at 7:30 p.m. there  will be a screening of Karen's last project, the HBO movie "Sergio," a documentary about United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Sergio Vieira de Mello, who was killed in a terrorist bomb explosion at the UN headquarters in Bagdad in 2003.

The director of "Sergio,"  Greg Barker, will introduce and conduct a discussion about the film, for which Karen won the Best Editing Award at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Also, kudos to the Independent Film Festival of Boston, which this year has instituted the Karen Schmeer Award for Best Editing.
