Jakob Ihre FSF wins the 2020 BSC Award!
The 2020 BSC Awards Night
Last night, Saturday 15th of February, for the second time the BSC held its special Awards Night in Mayfair, London, at the Grosvenor House Hotel. The house was packed with hundreds of guests and it was a very special gathering of friends and colleagues in the British and international motion picture business. The awards to be handed out during the proceedings were the BSC Lifetime Achievement Award as well as the awards for Best Cinematography in a Feature Film and Best Cinematography in a TV Drama, respectively. Also two awards for those frequently unsung -but as we in the business know crucially important- heroes: the camera operators. Two awards here as well, for best achievement in feature and TV Drama work, respectively.
The 2020 HSC Awards and Cinematographer’s Conference
The way in which IMAGO lists ”upcoming events” in the upper right hand corner on their website, is something I’ve always found very convenient. Earlier this year I noticed there was to be a cinematographer’s conference and a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Hungarian Society of cinematographers, the HSC, in Budapest in February.
The information sort of lingered in the back of my mind after that. After all, some of the most memorable films from the second half of the 20th Century were shot by Hungarian cinematographers. But of course lots of things started piling up in front of me during the next few weeks, I had to focus on the immediate matters at hand and the thought of the Hungarian event gradually faded from memory.
Jakob Ihre, FSF, på BarBro
Det blev ingen vanlig onsdagskväll på BarBro när Jakob Ihre, FSF den 12e februari gästade vår förenings favoritrestaurang vid Hornstull i Stockholm. Förmodligen slogs det gamla publikrekordet, som Andres Rignell, FSF etablerat i samband med sin föreläsning några år tidigare.
Jakob höll ett föredrag om arbetet på hans oerhört framgångsrika och kritikerrosade HBO-TVserie Chernobyl från 2018.
