Mónica Salazar is a Mexican editor mostly know for her work on feature films. She enjoys crafting stories on a daily basis, and is usually found hidden in the darkness of an editing room with a cup of coffee serving as her safety blanket. Her editing credits include Honey Boy (Alma Har’el) — which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, and was awarded the Special Jury Award for Vision and Craft, — and the Los Angeles Emmy award winning documentary, Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano (Ben Proudfoot).
Monica has also worked on numerous shorts films that have been part of Sundance, Cannes’ Short Film Corner, and many other film festivals. Her portfolio expands to documentaries, music videos, branded content and trailers.
To give back to the post production community, Monica serves as the Vice President of Los Angeles for Blue Collar Post Collective — an accessible and focused grassroots non-profit organization that supports emerging talent in post production.
Mónica takes pride in her taco-expertise and has found the best pastor tacos in LA.
