    BITOLA: The 43rd edition of the International Cinematographers Film Festival Manaki Brothers will kick off in Bitola on 19 August 2022. A total of 62 films will be screened in several locations until 26 August 2022.

    The festival will feature its traditional Golden Camera 300 competition for best cinematographic work as well as the Documentary Programme, the Short Film Programme, the Student Programme and Mak Point. The French film Mother and Son / Un Petit Frere by Léonor Serraille will open the festival.

    “This year we have the biggest representation of female cinematographers in all competition programmes. We also have more women in the jury committees for documentary and in the main programme”, festival director Simeon Damevski pointed out.

    British cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle will be presented with the Golden Camera 300 Lifetime Achievement Award, 13 years after he received the Special Golden Camera 300 at the 30th edition in 2009.
