The award ceremony of CAMERIMAGE, the international film festival of the art of cinematography, took place on Saturday, Nov 19.
There were 11 competitions including cinematography and directing debuts, documentary features, documentary shorts, audience awards, and more. The full list of the winners can be found here.
The most important, as always, has been the Main Competition with the Golden Frog Award.
With 12 titles competing, the Golden Frog went to the cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister for TÁR, directed by Todd Field.
Florian is in the middle of production in Iceland so he has sent a video with his acceptance speech. He actually was at the festival a few days earlier where he also did a Q&A session with the audience. In his speech, he mentioned how the festival reminded him that the cinema is a place for meetings and discussions. So valuable, especially in the post-pandemic reality of today. By the end, he expressed his hope to visit CAMERIMAGE next year as well.
