Continuing 25 years of support, Panavision once again celebrates the art and craft of moving pictures with filmmakers at the Camerimage International Film Festival of Cinematography, which runs November 11 - 18 in Bydgoszcz, Poland. This year, Panavision hosts a masterclass with Oscar®-winner John Toll, ASC, and a workshop on large-format filmmaking.

On Nov. 14 in the MCK, Panavision Day begins with the workshop, "The Beauty of 8K Large-Format" from 11:00 – 13:00. Peter Deming, ASC recently wrapped production on The New Mutants, utilizing the Panavision Millennium DXL 8K camera and lenses to create stunning visuals for the next X-Men installment. A screening of The New Mutants trailer be will explored by Panavision’s VP of Optical Engineering Dan Sasaki, Senior VP of Innovation Michael Cioni, and Light Iron supervising colorist Ian Vertovec. They will discuss the unique advantages of 8K capture, high-resolution creative control, and how ultra-high resolution is one of the best-kept secrets for producing even better imagery.

Toll, who is this year’s Camerimage Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, will participate in a moderated conversation from 14:00 – 16:30. The two-time Oscar®-winner (Legends of the Fall, Braveheart) will discuss excerpts from his films, share anecdotes from the set, and answer questions from the audience.

At the Camerimage exhibition area in the Opera Nova, Panavision will have Millennium DXLs on display for festival attendees to get hands-on with the camera. The new HDR OLED Primo Viewfinder, the advanced PX-Pro color spectrum filter, and a selection of innovative large-format and anamorphic Panavision lenses also will be showcased alongside the Panavision System 65mm film camera used to shoot Murder on the Orient Express.
