ICG Local 600 Emerging Cinematographer Awards 2016

Event hosted by: ICG Local 600
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.
Founded in 1996 by Rob Kositchek, Jr. Kositchek discovered his inspiration to honor exciting new talent when he attended â€œFirst Look,â€ at the University of Southern California Film Showcase. With the support of (then) ICG President, George Spiro Dibie, ASC, the Awards were established under the â€œFilm Showcaseâ€ banner.
Since its inception more than 1,000 short film entries have been submitted by Camera Operators and Assistants, proving that there is a much needed forum for budding cinematographers to show their craft. The winning films are selected by a panel of judges comprised of ICG members from all over the country. Each film is no more than 30 minutes in length.
The International Cinematographers Guild will host the Emerging Cinematographer Awards screening and reception at the SVA Theatre in New York City on October 30th. There will be a screening of 10 short films shot by ICG’s ECA Honorees who are being honored at the ECA premiere event at the Directors Guild Theater in Los Angeles on September 25.
