Steven Poster, ASC, President of the ICG, said, “The Emerging Cinematographer Awards are a terrific opportunity for our members who are about to take the leap into cinematography. These honored films show that they are already Directors of Photography.” 

Jimmy Matlosz, Chairman of the guild’s ECA committee added, “As we enter into our 22nd year, the ECA’s are one of the only awards shows that recognize the art of cinematography in short films in the world. I am continuously inspired by the filmmakers and feel proud to be in such great company of honorees, sponsors and staff.” 

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 and can be also be seen by a wider audience at selected film festivals throughout the year, including Camerimage in Poland.
