PAUL RENÉ ROESTAD FNF IMAGO and authorship Cinematographers have full authorship rights in many countries, in some not at all. The lack of authorship rights in many countries often results in cinematographers not being allowed, or sometimes allowed but not paid, to be present during the post colour grading or DI-process, often experiencing that their intended image colour suddenly having been completely changed, and sometimes even experiencing digitally re-framing of their images. The advantage in Countries where cinematographers have authorship rights over their images, is that this is not possible. By law, no-one can change or alter an image protected by authorship without the authors approval. IMAGO´s Authorship Committee, under the leadership of Luciano Tovoli AIC ASC, and with amongst others Nigel Walters BSC, Jost Vacano BVK ASC and Vittorio Storaro AIC ASC as Committee advisors, are working to look into the situation for international cinematographers regarding authorship. Restoration of our vast film heritage IMAGO works with ACE (Association des Cinemateques Europeennes) to strengthen the work with digitizing and restoration of our vast film heritage. Together with ACE, IMAGO works also to secure cinematographer´s place and cooperation during the restoration process, and on securing the necessary financing for the important archival and restoration work. ASC and IMAGO ASC and IMAGO plans to be cooperating closely in several areas of common interest in the years to come, in technical and artistic areas, on education, and on promoting and protecting the art of cinematography. Already at the Camerimage in 2016, ASC and IMAGO cooperated closely on arranging several valuable seminars and conferences for the large number of cinematographers present. Education and information IMAGO works closely with selected film schools to assist and improve the education of young cinematographers. Many cinematographers already are working also as lecturers, and also here exchanging experience for knowledge from all corners of the World helps film schools tailor make the best education for our young future colleagues. IMAGO and Gender and Diversity On major feature film productions, only between 5 and 7% of the cinematographers are female, although luckily, in Scandinavia between 15 and 20%. But half the World´s population are women. We are grateful for the great many women who has worked successfully as cinematographers for many years, not least as role models, and we now see extremely talented young women working as cinematographers with great success. But IMAGO

will keep on focussing on this challenge, through our Committee for Gender and Diversity, led by Nina Kellgren BSC and Elen Lotman ESC, hoping that before long, women will represent a major part of international cinematography. IMAGO Celebrates 2017 with new Cinematography Awards IMAGO celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2017. The reception will be hosted in Helsinki, Finland. On Saturday October 28th the IMAGO International Awards for Cinematographers will be presented with a significant presence of media and film colleagues from around the World. A great black tie gala for international cinematographers in honor of Cinematography, with Awards given BY Cinematographers, TO Cinematographers. In 2017, Camerimage is also 25 years old, and ARRI is the senior, 100 years old, so there is a lot to be celebrated in 2017. Detailed information about the IMAGO International Awards for Cinematographers, including entry regulations, will be published early in 2017. IMAGO´s valuable sponsor partners IMAGO works with our many sponsor partners to heighten the quality of the art of cinematography, to educate and to inform about new equipment, techniques and production processes. In addition, IMAGO arranges workshops, master-classes and conferences where cinematographers come together to discuss topics of common artistic and technical importance to us all. In addition, IMAGO´s Committee for Creative Technology in Cinematography works with manufacturers to improve equipment and software to maximally suit cinematographer´s needs. Without the support from our invaluable sponsor partners we would not have been able to do this extensive work so important for all cinematographers and for the development of our art. IMAGO is therefore immensely grateful to our sponsor partners for their continuous and extremely valuable support and partnership.
