All members societies of IMAGO are invited by the FSC The Finnish Society of Cinematographers. The gathering is in the 26th, 27th and 28th of October.
This year is really special. IMAGO celebrates its 25th anniversary. It was in 1992 when in Rome a few members of the BSC, AIC, AFC, BVK and not yet AEC the Spanish society was not yet founded, got together and followed the inspirational dream of Luciano Tovoli AIC ASC to create an European Federation of cinematographers. It became effective a few months later by registering the federation in Paris.
25 years has now passed since that 13th of December in Rome and now IMAGO holds 47 countries and has widen its influence out of the European continent reaching now other parts of the world having now societies from all continents.
This year is special. For the first time IMAGO implements the International awards, praising cinematographers members of the federation in the categories of feature, documentary and TV drama. The gala ceremony will be on Saturday the 28th evening in Helsinki.
