NEW YORK—

Technicolor – PostWorks

, New York, provided post production services for three films screening this month at Camerimage, the world’s leading international film festival celebrating cinematographers and the craft of cinematography. They include

“For many years Technicolor-PostWorks has taken a great interest in helping out Camerimage by connecting us with key filmmakers and pertinent content,” said Camerimage Festival Office Manager Kazik Suwala. “This year the relationship continued through an introduction to John Turturro and his new feature

Fading Gigolo
