Kodak Presents an Hour with Oscar®-Nominee Ed Lachman

Publish date:

NEW YORK, September 20, 2011 — Eastman Kodak Company will present “An Hour with Ed Lachman, ASC” at IFP’s 33rd Annual Independent Film Week (formerly known as the IFP Market). The discussion with the award-winning cinematographer of such films as I’m Not There, Erin Brokovich and Far From Heaven will be held September 22 at 1 p.m. at the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center at 144 West 65th Street. The session is free to conference-goers. Lachman will discuss the collaborative process he has developed with various directors and the importance of style and visual storytelling. In particular, he will focus on the why he and director Todd Haynes chose Super 16mm film for the Emmy®-nominated HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce. Lachman, an Oscar® nominee for Far From Heaven, which was also directed by Haynes, was nominated for an Emmy® for his work on Mildred Pierce. “Ed Lachman is innovative filmmaker who consistently creates superior and memorable images,” says Kodak’s Anne Hubbell. “We feel privileged for the opportunity to sit down with him and find out more about his creative philosophy, practical solutions, and collaborative process.” Kodak’s support of Independent Film Week, which runs September 18-22, also includes sponsoring each day’s “In Conversations With…” sessions. Participants include co-heads of Creative Artists Agency’s Film Finance Group Micah Green and Roeg Sutherland, filmmaker/author/TV producer/critic Nelson George, Back Allie Films President Andrea Meditch, Submarine Entertainment Co-Presisent Josh Braun, as well as a panel featuring the heads of top film festivals discussing the role festivals are playing in the exhibition and distribution of independent features.
