'Ida,' 'Renoir,' 'Winter Nomads' Cinematographers Nominated for ASC's Inaugural Spotlight Award
The newly created award honors work typically screened at film festivals, internationally or in limited theatrical release.
The American Society of Cinematographers on Tuesday revealed the nominees for its debut ASC Spotlight Award: Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski for Ida, Mark Ping Bing Lee for Renoir and Camille Cottagnoud for Winter Nomads.
The award was created to recognize outstanding cinematography in features and documentaries typically screened at film festivals, internationally or in limited theatrical release.
ASC members submitted entries for consideration, which went before a Blue Ribbon panel that chose the nominees. All active members will vote to select the winner, which will be announced at the 28th annual ASC Awards on Feb. 1 at the Hollywood & Highland Ray Dolby Ballroom.
“We’ve been honoring outstanding achievement in cinematography since we started the ASC Awards in 1987,” says ASC Awards chairman Lowell Peterson. “Several ASC members developed the concept for this award after being inspired by these types of productions. We chose to add this new honor to recognize and praise areas of our art form that previously might have been overlooked.”
