On Saturday 3rd February the British Society of Cinematographers celebrated their 68th Annual British Cinematography Awards, at the Royal Lancaster, London.
Cinelab Film & Digital were incredibly proud to support the event, sponsoring the Best Cinematography in a Feature Film Award. The Cinelab team were in attendance, including Cinelab’s CEO Adrian Bull, who was delighted to present the award to Robbie Ryan BSC ISC, who won the for his photography of Yorgos Lanthimos’s POOR THINGS.
Ryan commented when accepting the award: “I want to pay tribute to Yorgos, he is an incredible artist and I learn something from him with each film. I also want to thank Cinelab for their amazing work – all five of the nominees this year were shot on film, something we should all be celebrating”.
It has been superb year for films, and it was wonderful to celebrate so many great films shot on film. The other nominees in the feature film category included Linus Sandgren for SALTBURN, Matthew Libatique for MAESTRO, Hoyte van Hoytema for OPPENHEIMER, and Rodrigo Prieto for KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON.
Along with scanning Robbie’s work on POOR THINGS, Cinelab are honoured to have processed and scanned Linus’s work on Emerald Fennel’s SALTBURN, and Matthew Libatique’s UK shot 35mm footage for Bradley Cooper’s MAESTRO.
