For Cinematographers, All Roads Lead to Camerimage

6 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the organizers of the Camerimage Intl. Festival of the Art of Cinematography should blush. A number of similar film festivals are gaining momentum, including the Manaki Bros. Intl. Cinematographers’ Film Festival in Macedonia, Ostrava Kamera Oko Intl. Festival of Cinematographers in the Czech Republic and the nascent Bristol Festival of Cinematography. But the question asked around the American Society of Cinematographers clubhouse and anywhere camera people gather as summer wanes, is, “Will I see you in Poland?”

Chris Menges, Walter Murch and Sandy Powell will be among those making the journey to Bydgoszcz, in western Poland, for the 23rd Camerimage, which kicks off Nov. 14 with a screening of Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” featuring the work of frequent collaborator and Polish native Janusz Kaminski.

The showcase has gained a position of dominance with a single-minded focus on celebrating the creators of motion picture imagery. »

Groundbreaking Dp Maryse Alberti on Shooting 'Freeheld,' 'Creed' and 'The Visit'

15 September 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Along with Sandi Sissel, Ellen Kuras, Lisa Rinzler and Nancy Schreiber, Maryse Alberti was a groundbreaking female cinematographer at a time when the field was overwhelmingly male (more so than today). Even as more women have steadily entered the field, Alberti still stands out for her versatility and inventiveness. Since starting out in the late 1980s working on a short film with Christine Vachon, Alberti has worked steadily with some of the boldest directors of our time. She's shot a wide range of films, alternating between nonfiction and fiction, with directors including Todd Haynes ("Velvet Goldmine," "Poison"), Darren Aronofsky ("The Wrestler"), Terry Zwigoff ("Crumb"), Michael Apted ("Moving the Mountain," "Incident at Oglala") and Liz Garbus ("Love, Marilyn") and Amy Berg ("West of Memphis"), among others. She received Sundance Film Festival Best Cinematography honors for documentaries »

Producer Gail Egan, who has worked with Mike Leigh on Mr. Turner, Vera Drake and Happy-Go-Lucky, with Anton Corbijn on A Most Wanted Man, Philip Seymour Hoffman's last role, and with Film4Climate’s Creative Producer Donald Ranvaud on Fernando Meirelles' The Constant Gardener, was celebrated by Alan Rickman. As was his cinematographer, Ellen Kuras, of Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind as well as first-time composer, Peter Gregson, whose music is well placed in the landscape. Cédric Anger, when I spoke with him on his composer, Grégoire Hetzel, for Next Time I’ll Aim For The Heart, told me he had wanted the music in the forest sound like a cathedral. Hetzel also composed the score for Mathieu Amalric's The Blue Room and the positioning in A Little Chaos »

Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman Reunite for ‘A Little Chaos’ 20 Years After ‘Sense and Sensibility’

18 June 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been 20 years since Kate Winslet made her breakthrough performance opposite Alan Rickman in “Sense and Sensibility.” The two prolific actors are back together for another period drama, but forgo Jane Austen for 17th century France in Focus World’s “A Little Chaos.”

“It was absolutely wonderful to reunite with him after such a long time,” Winslet, 39, told Variety at the film’s New York premiere on Wednesday at the Museum of Modern Art hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company. “I’ve grown quite a lot as a person and hopefully as an actor since [we were last together on screen].

In the film, Rickman, who directed and co-wrote the movie’s screenplay, plays King Louis Xiv and Winslet stars as a gardener chosen to build one of the main gardens at the King’s new palace at Versailles.

“To be able to bring a level of collaboration into this experience was quite different. I »
