Message from the President

"Hang on a minute Ernie, I just want to tell our members something..."

Greetings ACS friends and colleagues,


Our National Awards for Cinematography not only recognises the very best of the best, but gives those attending the opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere of brotherhood. Cinematographers spend their careers separated from family and friends but at times they enjoy the camaraderie of both and it shows.

The Awards will be held Saturday, 5th May and this year are hosted by the Queensland Branch at the historic Brisbane Customs House
with our very special Guest of Honour, acclaimed Australian actor, Ms Noni Hazlehurst AM.

There will be a number of other events associated with the National Awards, one being the “Meet the Nominees” session on the morning of Saturday 5th at the Griffith Film School Theatre which has become a traditional part of the Awards festivities. Moderared by the esteemed Kim Batterham ACS and featuring a number of those cinematographers nominated for Awards, it promises to be a reel highlight. There will also be a number of special guests along with a screening/Q&A of "Picnic at Hanging Rock - Episode 1" hosted by one of our finest cinematographers, Garry Phillips ACS on Friday evening. There will be an event we’re calling ACS SPONSORS “IMPRESSIONS” EXPO which will also take place on Friday 4th May at the Griffith Film School Studio from 10.00am until 4.30pm with plenty of opportunities to have a hands on experience with the very latest of equipment supplied by our ACA National Sponsors.

My thanks to the generosity of the participating National Sponsors at this time who include FUJINON, KAYELL, CW Sonderoptic, PANASONIC, MILLER CAMERA SUPPORT, PANAVISION, ROSCO, LEMAC, CANON and ARRI Australia.

The Awards program of events promises much and we all hope you will seize the moment and support your Society and your fellow cinematographers.

My continued sincere thanks to the Queensland Branch under the inspired leadership of John Stokes ACS and the amazing Awards committee of Hemma Kearney, Tim Jordin, Erika Addis, Mick Fanning and Josh Logan. Special thanks to all at Griffith Film School for their generous support and collaborative spirit.

Until next time
Ron Johanson OAM ACS
National President
