Jimmy Matlosz, Co-Chair of the Guild’s ECA committee added, “The ECA’s are back, and we are excited to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of these very talented filmmakers. Each year the competition is increasingly more challenging, and we look forward to spotlighting these emerging cinematographers from across the country.”
ICG's Emerging Cinematographer Awards gives Local 600 members an opportunity to present themselves as directors of photography by submitting a short film with a running time of 30 minutes or less for consideration. The awards are open to any member of the Guild who is not already classified as a director of photography. The films are selected by a panel of ICG members from across the country.
