Mission / description The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography CAMERIMAGE is the greatest and most recognized festival dedicated to the art of cinematography and its creators - cinematographers. CAMERIMAGE contributes to the growth of cinematographers' prestige. The unconventional format of the Festival, which awards films according to their visual, aesthetic and technical values, has turned out to be an alternative for traditional film festivals. As all our guests emphasize - CAMERIMAGE is unique. The Festival proves to be a great forum not only for presentation but also for further development of international moviemaking. CAMERIMAGE helps young filmmakers and integrates the community of those already recognized, allowing them to explore new artistic areas. full text less text

Remembering the masters
CAMERIMAGE has always focused on distinguishing the cinematographers. “Remembering the Masters" is on the one hand to accentuate the craft of all those brilliant cinematographers who passed away, and on the other to provoke a discussion about the cinematic possibilities. In the moment of the digital revolution, both mental and technological, it is crucial not to forget about the always-fascinating history of cinema without which such revolution wouldn't come.
