The 2nd IMAGO INTERNATIONAL AWARDS for CINEMATOGRAPHY
Belgrade, Serbia in March 2019.

Each IMAGO member Society is invited to nominate a single entry in the Feature film category and 1 each in Student, TV Drama and Documentaries.

In late October, the call for entries into the the 2nd IMAGO INTERNATIONAL AWARDS for CINEMATOGRAPHY, which will be held in Belgrade, Serbia in March 2019 was announced. Each IMAGO member Society is invited to nominate a single entry in the Feature film category and 1 each in Student, TV Drama and Documentaries. I can confirm that our nominations based on our 2018 National Awards results will be:

STUDENT
Nathaniel Kelly (NT)
~ Curriculum
DOCUMENTARIES
Abraham Joffe ACS (NSW)
~ Tales By Light - Life and Death
TV DRAMA
Geoffrey Hall ACS (SA)
~ Wake In Fright 'Episode 2’
FEATURE FILMS
Greig Fraser ACS ASC (VIC)
~ Lion

IMAGO President, Paul Rene Roestad FNF added,

“For the first time ever, at the 2019 IMAGO Awards, we are now including the Student Film Award category, entries for which can be submitted by a member Society after selection from its country’s film schools.

Imago are also introducing the Emerging Young Cinematographer Award and the winner of this exciting new award will be chosen by the Presidents of each Society. IMAGO is very proud to present the 2019 Imago International Awards for Cinematography and we wish all participants the very best of luck.”

The addition of the Emerging Young Cinematographer category is of great importance, and I ask each of our Branch Presidents to contact me should they have someone they would like to include to be nominated.

The basic criteria is that the nomination can be made by the society’s President. The cinematographer must be no older than 32 years of age at the time of entry and the feature film, documentary or TV drama must be his/her first one

IMAGO will be in touch with each National/Country President in the coming weeks with more information, and I will keep the Branch Presidents informed.

Enjoy the Awards presentations in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and support our ACS cinematographers at every opportunity.

Rachel Morrison, ASC Supports Women’s Filmmaker Program

Photo by Danna Kinsky.

Rachel Morrison, ASC was one of six women to serve as a mentor in the fourth annual Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program. In collaboration with Pulse Films and facilitated by Tribeca Film Institute, the program provides project support, mentorship, peer sessions and master classes on directing, costume design, composing, producing and more to up-and-coming US-based women writers and directors.

Producer Paula Weinstein, who serves as executive vice president of Tribeca Enterprises, says that Through Her Lens is a program “where women help women through mentorship, through encouragement [and] through creating a space for women’s voices to be heard.”

Following an intensive three-day workshop, Morrison and the other jury members — actor-director Dianna Agron, producer Effie T. Brown, actor Cara Delevingne, writer-director Mary Harron and Weinstein — evaluated five projects from participating filmmakers eligible for a production grant with production support from Tribeca Studios.

The jury elected the short film Rosa — written and directed by Suha Araj and produced by Maryam Keshavar — as the recipient. The other four writer-directors in the program were also awarded development funds to aid in bringing their projects closer toward completion.

Record Australian line-up at Sundance

A record six Australian feature films will screen at the Sundance Film Festival, with Animals, Judy and Punch, Little Monsters, Top End Wedding and I Am Mother having their world premieres in the Utah-based festival, which runs from January 24 – February 3.

In addition, Jennifer Kent’s The Nightingale will have its North American premiere after winning the special jury prize and the Marcello Mastroianni award for best new young performer for Baykali Ganambar at this year’s Venice Film Festival.

That surpasses the previous record of five in 1997. Sundance has been a great launching pad for Australian productions including David Michod’s Animal Kingdom in 2010 (World Cinema Jury Prize), Greg McLean’s Wolf Creek in 2005, Scott Hicks’ Shine in 1996, Kitty Green’s Casting JonBenet (2017) and Nash Edgerton’s Mr Inbetween (2018).

“The six films selected by Sundance display the array of stories Australians now tell and the demand for our screen content internationally,” said Screen Australia CEO Graeme Mason.

“The fact that all the films revolve around central female characters, and half of the films are directed by women, is a milestone for the Australian industry. Change is coming – slowly, but surely.”
