The AFC at Camerimage 2021

[ English ] [ français ]

The AFC’s presence at Camerimage this year will first and foremost be through its representation in the selection: seven films shot by its members are in competition in various sections. In the wake of the “Lifetime Achievement Award” presented to Philippe Rousselot, AFC, ASC, in 2020, a retrospective of four of his films will be screened. Another film shot by Will Kurant, AFC, ASC, will be screened as part of the series entitled “In Memory of the Masters”, and the cinematography of two short films, which are part of the “Focus on La Fémis” series, is by two AFC members at the start of their respective careers.

Jean-Marie Dreujou, AFC, will be the president of the TV Series Competition. There will also be two screenings of blind comparisons of full format lenses done by Caroline Champetier, AFC, Denis Lenoir, AFC, ASC, ASK, and Martin Roux, in February 2021.
Following a screening of Olympiades, Paul Guilhaume, AFC, will discuss his work on this film by Jacques Audiard.
