“This Showcase is a preview of the future of the art of filmmaking,” says National Guild President George Spiro Dibie, ASC. “It demonstrates a deep reservoir of talent in our Guild, which bodes well for the future. The films selected by our judges are all works of art where the cinematographers played important roles in creating entertaining and interesting stories.”
The competition is open to all ICG members who are still photographers, camera loaders, assistants and operators. Entries must be 30 minutes or less. More than 70 entries were evaluated on how artfully the scripts and performances were translated into images that serve the stories.
