Cameraimage, the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, will this year honour director Marc Forster (World War Z, Quantum of Solace) and Roberto Schaefer (Finding Neverland, Quantum of Solace) with their special Cinematographer/Director Duo Award.
This award will acknowledge a decade of collaboration between the pair, which has resulted in eight diverse and award-winning films including Everything Put Together, Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland, Stay, Stranger Than Fiction, The Kit Runner, Quantum of Solace and Machine Gun Preacher. It represents the pair’s creativity and passion, and their ability to reach compromise in realising a joint vision.
