Part I: IMAGO Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Both Imago Diversity & Inclusion Committee and ASC Vision Committee were established in 2016, although coincidentally and independently from each other, it could indicate a bigger global change. Now a joint 5-year anniversary offers a good reason to look back and summarize the experiences. We will reflect back on the status quo of 2016 and on which (if any) changes can be observed within the 5-year period. Looking at the question of diversity and inclusion in cinematography globally, the roundtable intends to map possible steps for the future and understand what works for creating the change.

We invite cinematographers from all over the world to participate. The bigger the picture, the more equipped we are to change it.
