Camerimage, the international film festival for the art of cinematography that has been held in Poland for the past 26 years, is looking for a home.
The annual event — which is wildly popular with cinematographers and concluded its 26th festival Saturday — has been held in the city of Bydgoszcz since 2010, but as the awards ceremony wrapped Saturday, founder and festival director Marek Zydowicz announced that the city had cut its funding by 25 percent.
Onstage, he emphasized his commitment to the festival and urged guests, “When you go back to your cities and towns around the world” to find officials who would put their community “above their petty political squabbles.”
He added, “Let us know, and we will come there with the festival.”
On Saturday, The Fortress, director Dong-hyuk Hwang’s 2017 historical drama about China’s 17th-century invasion of Korea, lensed by cinematographer Ji-yong Kim, won the Golden Frog in the main competition. Meanwhile, two Oscar contenders, Cold War and Roma, grabbed the Silver and Bronze Frogs, respectively.
