Who Are We?

It is legally established, and is managed by industry professionals.

Our Mission:

To contribute to understanding of the importance of cinematography to the art and craft of filmmaking.

To encourage and assist the career development of cinematographers.


"A cinematographer is a visual psychiatrist, moving an audience... making them think the way you want them to think, painting pictures in the dark."

Gordon Willis

"Cinematography is infinite in its possibilities... much more so than music or language."

Conrad Hall

"You make the movie through the cinematography - it sounds quite a simple idea, but it was like a huge revelation to me."

Nicolas Roeg
