(BYDGOSZCZ, Poland) - Kodak is hosting back-to-back conversations with renowned cinematographers Sean Bobbitt, BSC and Bruno Delbonnel, ASC, AFC at the 21st edition of Camerimage, the international film festival of cinematography, on November 21 at 7:00 (CMT) in the Opera Nova, first floor seminar room. Both Bobbitt and Delbonnel have films competing in the main competition: Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave and the Coen brothers' Inside Lewelyn Davis, respectively. Each discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
Bobbitt, a BAFTA and Emmy® nominee, recently shot Killing the Messenger, The Place Beyond the Pines, 12 Years a Slave, Shame and Hunger. The latter three of those movies were done with McQueen.
Delbonnel collaborated with director Jean-Pierre Jeunet on Amelie and A Very Long Engagement, and earned Oscar® nominations for both films. His credits include Dark Shadows, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, The Cat's Meow, Infamous and Across the Universe, which garnered the Silver Frog at Camerimage in 2007.
"Camerimage is a wonderful opportunity for the cinematography community to share ideas and philosophies, as well as celebrate the art itself," says Andrew Evenski, president of Kodak's Entertainment Imaging business. "We are proud to be part of the 20-plus year history of this unique festival."
This year's festival opens November 16 with a screening of Saving Mr. Banks which was photographed by John Schwartzman, ASC on Kodak film.
