AC Wins Folio: Honors
American Cinematographer won a
Folio: Eddie Award for editorial excellence
during the Folio: Show's awards luncheon,
held at the Hilton Midtown in New York
City on Oct. 31. In the B-to-B Media/Entertainment/Publishing category, Michael
Goldman's article on The Revenant ("Left
for Dead," Jan. '16) took top honors for
Best Single Article. AC earned three additional nominations as well. The February '16
issue, featuring Star Wars: The Force Awakens, earned an honorable mention for Full
Issue, while Iain Marcks' piece on Carol ("A
American Cinematographer

Mid-Century Affair," Dec. '15) and Jay
Holben's piece on A Beautiful Planet ("Time
and Space," June '16) received nods for
Single Article.
Society Hosts Day of Inspiration
The ASC organized an historic event
on Saturday, Oct. 22, when 140 women
cinematographers, operators and other
industry professionals gathered for a "Day
of Inspiration." The event was planned by
the Society's recently formed Vision
Committee, co-chaired by ASC members
Cynthia Pusheck and John Simmons.
Cinelease, Panavision and Sim Group cosponsored the event.
ASC President Kees van Oostrum
introduced the event as a "first" in the
ASC's nearly 100 years of existence, and
pointed out that, of the ASC's approximately 350 active members, only 15 are
women. "Those 15 have done a lot of work
in the industry to change assumptions,"
said van Oostrum, who credits ASC events
coordinator Patty Armacost and president's
assistant Delphine Figueras for their expert
running of the organization.
Pusheck and Simmons welcomed
the packed room. "This is the first event at
the Clubhouse where camerawomen have
outnumbered cameramen," said Pusheck.
She described how Brianne Murphy, the
ASC's first female member, pushed her way
into the union and finally was invited to join
the Society. "We almost named the day
after her," she said. "Seven of us became
members in the last five or six years, so our
numbers in the ASC have doubled. I think
there's a chance we could double our
numbers again in a few years.
"In this business we have our nose
on the grindstone and rarely look up to
celebrate where we are," Pusheck added.
"But don't forget to enjoy the ride. That's
what we want today to be about - to celebrate the women who broke through the
barriers, the ones working today, and to
inspire the next generation."

Shepherds and Butchers, during the 17th

Awards Ceremony, which was held at Backstage Studio Productions in Kingston, N.Y.

members, community leaders and other
festivalgoers attended the event. From
2002-2015, the late Haskell Wexler, ASC
personally selected the award winner for
best cinematography. For 2016, Kuras
stepped in to select the winner.
