BIG CHANGES FOR THE SUN CINEMATOGRAPHY AWARD

We are entering our 9th year of the award at an exceptionally exciting time for women in the film industry. People are eager to see stories and media created by women, and even more eager to work with diverse teams than ever before. The Sun Cinematography Award has bolstered the career aspirations of seven women to date, and we look forward to being a tangible part of the momentum that brings more amazing women into critical roles behind the camera.


To this end, we have two exciting announcements:

Our new sponsor has committed to providing our award recipients with a full workflow for creating stunning — and hopefully career-changing — work, from professional cameras through editing, color, and delivery.

In our first year with Blackmagic Design, they are providing our recipient with a seat of DaVinci Resolve Studio and the use of an URSA Mini Pro for her upcoming production.


Blackmagic Design has expressed a desire to support our filmmakers beyond the award, and we look forward to seeing how this relationship emerges with the first recipient to receive this generous gift: Madeline Leach.

The Institute for Education, Research & Scholarships

OUR NEW FISCAL SPONSOR

In addition to Blackmagic Design, the awards program has added The Institute for Education, Research & Scholarships (IFERS.org) as their fiscal sponsor. Established in 2004, the Institute is an award-winning California-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity organization dedicated to improving society by providing resources to high achieving students, scientific researchers, community nonprofit projects, and educational organizations. This gives us access to better award opportunities for our recipients, while also making it far easier than ever before to make tax deductible donations, both monetary and in-kind.
