The Glorious Camerimage Festival Is Going Virtual This Year

Scoop up your entry card before it's too late. 

The best festival for cinematographers to attend has always been Camerimage. The multi-day event features some of the biggest names in the game, and this year is no different. What is different is instead of needing to fly to Toruń, Poland, where it's traditionally held, the festival will be hosted virtually.

Better yet, for the first time ever, selected screenings, seminars, and live events will be available online on its dedicated streaming platform.

This year's list of featured speakers is unbelievably good. Check it out: 

  • Vittorio Storaro,  ASC, AIC
  • Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC, CBE
  • Philippe Rousselot. AFC, ASC
  • Caleb Deschanel, ASC
  • Phedon Papamichael, ASC, GSC
  • Łukasz Żal, PSC
  • Tobias Schliessler, ASC
  • Denis Lenoir, AFC, ASC
  • Glen MacPherson, ASC, CSC
  • Martin Ruhe, ASC
  • Erik Messerschmidt, ASC
  • Amy Vincent, ASC
  • Matthew Libatique, ASC
  • Rodrigo Prieto, ASC, AMC
  • Stephen Lighthill, ASC

This year's event will be held Nov. 14-21, and online booking for the festival starts Nov. 13, which is required to participate in the film screenings.

Go here to book an entry card for the screenings. It does come at a cost of $150 PLN (approx. $35 USD) during the presale and $180 PLN (approx. $50 USD) during the festival. However, Camerimage says all seminars, Q&As, and other live events will be available without the need to make an individual booking. 

Since there's a limited number of seats in the virtual screening rooms, Camerimage is saying that an entry card does not guarantee admission. Hopefully, there won't be too many hiccups. 

You can check out the full schedule at this link (seminars are on the last page), and find out all the info over at Camerimage.

Instead of taking this opportunity to move into the 21st century, lets continue our elitist traditions by having a limited number of "seats" in our virtual "screening rooms".

What kind of idiocy is this? No thanks.
