International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), the Netherlands Society of Cinematographers (NSC) and Andrea Müller-Schirmer, the late cinematographer Robby Müller’s wife, have launched the Robby Müller Award. The award honours an ‘image maker’ (cinematographer, filmmaker or visual artist) who, in the spirit of Robby Müller, has created an authentic, credible and emotionally striking visual language throughout her/his oeuvre. The award is a collaboration between IFFR, the Netherlands Society of Cinematographers (NSC) and Andrea Müller-Schirmer, Robby Müller’s wife. Each year, an ‘image-maker’ will be chosen by Andrea and a jury of film professionals. At a ceremony during IFFR, the winner will receive a print of one of Robby Müller’s rare Polaroids as their award. After this ceremony, the winner will have the opportunity to present a masterclass on their work, as part of the festival’s Masterclasses & Talks programme. To celebrate the first award, IFFR 2020 will also showcase a collection of Robby Müller’s personal and photographic work on Polaroid. The first award goes to Diego García and will be presented at IFFR 2020. Andrea Müller-Schirmer: “The beautiful long takes of Diego García's camera are a moving encounter with the characters and the setting. Like Robby's, Diego's visual language is credible, convincing and not constructed. It is supportive of the story but also carries its own signature. Both are telling stories via the poetry of light”. Robby Müller is the winner of the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD GOLDEN CAMERA 300 at the 37 edition of the International Cinematographers Film Festival Manaki Brothers 2016. ... See MoreSee Less

„Браќа Манаки“ може да се вброи во категоријата на одлични фестивали, иако ја нема ознаката А, затоа што шармантната Битола, единствена посветена на директорите на фотографија, е нашата ретка фестивалска гордост, која знае да ги негува своите ѕвезди (инцидентно, но затоа уште повеќе со нетрпение очекувани), но и својата публика ...
