ICG ECA WINNERS SHOW AT CAMERIMAGE 2017Added
The cooperation of CAMERIMAGE Festival and the International Cinematographers Guild (ICG) results in the next presentation of the winners of ICG's Emerging Cinematographers Awards. ICG ECA is a short film competition open to all ICG members who are not professional cinematographers. Camerimage will present the best films entered into the competition this year.
Nurturing talent and giving promising cinematographers the crucial exposure they need to succeed in the Motion Picture Industry lies at the heart of the International Cinematographers Guild's annual Emerging Cinematographer Awards. The annual competition was first launched in 1996, through an idea proposed by Rob Kositchek, who was an assistant cameraman at the time.
Here is the list of films:
