Congratulations to the Camerimage 2017 Winners!

Congratulations to Cinematographer Máté Herbai HSC, who has won the Golden frog at this year’s 25th Anniversary Camerimage film festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland, for On Body And Soul (above).

The Hungarian drama, which also won the Golden Bear at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, is about a man and woman who meet at work and begin to know each other, when they discover that they have the same dreams at night and decide to make them come true.

Silver and bronze frogs went to Russian DP Mikhail Krichman for Loveless, and British cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle for First They Killed My Father.
