The ASC also recognizes outstanding cinematography in feature-length projects that are screened at festivals, internationally, or in limited theatrical release with a Spotlight Award. The nominees are:

  • Lol Crawley, BSC for “Childhood of a Leader”
  • Gorka Gomez Andreu, AEC for “House of Others”
  • Ernesto Pardo for “Tempestad”
  • Juliette van Dormael for “Mon Ange” (“My Angel”)

“Each of the nominated films offers a unique vision on the part of the director of photography,” said Kees van Oostrum, ASC President. “These movies also represent a less formulaic or traditional photographic style, and some of their stories highlight socially conscious subject matter that drives a strong surge in photographic realism.”

In 2016, Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC took home the ASC Theatrical Award for “The Revenant,” and the Spotlight prize was a tie between Adam Arkapaw and Mátyás Erdély for Macbeth and Son of Saul, respectively.
