konecen katalog 2016 191IMAGO, the European Federation of Cinematographers, will hold its General Assembly during the Manaki Brothers Festival.


The Manaki Brothers Film Festival is the oldest film festival focussing on cinematography in the world. This festival has always been in high regard amongst international cinematographers, and IMAGO is delighted to be able to hold its 2016 General Assembly in Bitola, during the Manaki Festival. Some of us have already visited Macedonia, but many have not, and to be able to visit this great Festival and this beautiful Country has been a goal for many cinematographers for a long time. IMAGO is therefore most grateful for the good and generous cooperation of the Macedonian Film Professionals Association and its staff who have made our wish to introduce this important festival to more of our professional cinematographer members, come true.
IMAGO, the European Federation of Cinematographers, is an umbrella federation for close to 50 international Cinematographers Societies with more thаn 4.000 professional cinematographers from all the corners of the World as members. We trust and believe the good cooperation between IMAGO, the festival, and the Macedonian Film Professionals Association will result in even more international cinematographers becoming aware about the importance of the Manaki Brothers International Cinematographers' Film Festival, that they will visit, and that this festival will be an even bigger household name in all cinematographers' minds in the future.
