ICG to Host Special Awards Luncheon


The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) will host a special luncheon, Sept. 28 as part of celebrations of its 16th annual Emerging Cinematographer awards, to be held at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles on Sept 30.

Four major film industry corporations will be presenting special awards at the event. The Canon Camera Award for the advancement of digital technology in film and television will go to David Stump, ASC. Peter Caranicas of Variety will receive the Technicolor “William A. Fraker” Award for outstanding journalistic contributions in cinematography. The Deluxe “Bud Stone” award for outstanding educational contributions to the art and craft of cinematography will be presented to Dejan Georgevich, ASC, while Nancy Schreiber, ASC will receive the Kodak Award for mentoring young cinematographers.

“These awardees have all taken an active interest in promoting the art of cinematography and are helping to guide the next generation of camera professionals,” said Steven Poster, national president of the ICG. He said he was especially pleased by the inaugural Canon award which goes to David Stump for his contributions in spearheading the Image Control Assessment Series, sponsored by the American Society of Cinematographers, Producers Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. “This event was a test of new digital cameras and the new ACES workflow designed by the Scientific and Technical Committee of the Motion Picture Academy to help our industry better understand the impact of technology on our craft and our jobs and provided invaluable insights,” said Poster.

The Emerging Cinematographer Awards are given each year to members of the guild who are not yet cinematographers, but who have taken that role in their submitted short film. This year there were more than 100 entries.
