Ingrid Schulz (MFA) is a filmmaker, editor, and educator. Her short documentary, Lost in the Translation, was filmed in Germany shortly after the Berlin wall came down, and has been screened at festivals in the United States and abroad, receiving a Golden Gate Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 1997. While in graduate school, Ingrid integrated new editing technology to her projects, and assisted at the first post production facility to offer Apple computer editing on the west coast (SFPG). In 1997, she assisted on the animated feature, ANTZ (DreamWorks/PDI), and subsequently worked as an Avid trainer, helping editors in Los Angeles and San Francisco in their transition to digital. In 1998, the road lead her to Rome, to assist on the film, THE LEGEND OF 1900, as well as television editing for RAI Internationale. From 1999 - 2004, Ingrid edited at the PBS affiliate, KQED, contributing to a number of award winning documentaries. In 2004, Ingrid published the book, Points of view: Three Hollywood Film Editors Discuss Their Art, containing interviews with editors, Carol Littleton, Mary Sweeney, and Sally Menke.

In addition to her film work, Ingrid enjoys travel, nature and teaching. Over the years, she has taught courses in film production, editing, history, and theory at San Francisco State University, UC Berkeley, Cal State Monterey Bay, and in Estonia (at Tallinn University Baltic Film and Media School), and in Germany (at the Fachhochschule Würzburg). In 2012, Ingrid worked at PIXAR, in their short films department, and is now directing a film called Finding A Safe Place.
