A large contingent of ASC associate members was also in attendance.

Together, the three spoke passionately about their love for film as a production medium and the creative choice to use large-format 65mm cameras to photograph their next production, the World War II-set drama Dunkirk, to be released in July of 2017.

American Cinematographer will feature complete coverage on the production of Dunkirk next year.
