It’s right there in its name: Camerimage is where cinematographers must go when they die. They’re not waiting to cross the line to get there, though—in 2017, 820 DPs from 50 countries arrived as guests (Christopher Doyle, Ed Lachman, and Anthony Dod Mantle were mobbed by an international audience) to drop knowledge on eager-to-learn lensers. The number of cinematography events, panels and, workshops at Camerimage is almost unspeakably staggering, but the fest especially prides itself on its “Get Noticed” panel, which brings together talent agency reps from Europe and the U.S. to shed light on how DPs can get an agent, get the most out of their agent-artist relationship, and choose projects that will help brand themselves early in their career.

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
