The British Independent Cinematography Awards is aimed at encouraging and rewarding Indie filmmaking from all ages from all round the world. With many film festivals being out of reach for many filmmakers it is our aim to provide this platform to showcase and encourage the art of cinematography no matter what camera and equipment was used. It is run by passionate, experienced cinematographers and filmmakers with a host of experience under their belts.

In these wonderful times of affordable cameras there has never been a better opportunity to go and create your own film. We have already seen inexpensive cameras used in the mainstream film world, such as older DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D Mkii, Apple iPhones and Sony A7Sii to name but a few.

The BIC Awards are split into different categories to suit different camera tech and price brackets giving everyone a chance to have their work recognised whether shot on a phone camera or an Arri Alexa!

"A CINEMATOGRAPHER IS A VISUAL PSYCHIATRIST, MOVING AN AUDIENCE... MAKNG THEM THINK THE WAY YOU WANT THEM TO THINK, PAINTING PICTURES IN THE DARK "

Gordon Willis

"IT'S FAR BETTER TO SHOOT A GOOD PICTURE THAN A GOOD LOOKING-PICTURE "
