  • Greetings to participants of the ADIFF - Actor & Director Awards!
    I would like to advise the young cinematographers not to let cinematography become only entertainment again. Because, cinematography was created for an entertainment and then with the creative vision of Charlie Chaplin, Mêlées, Griffith, Eisenstein, Fritz Lang, F. Fellini, Luis Bunuel, Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwik Ghatak, Samad Mardanov and so on, movie was transformed into art. Cinematography has to give positive emotions to humanity. We have to keep this world together. Love CINEMATOGRAPHY in yourself, not yourself in CINEMATOGRAPHY. World is a home for all of us and cinematograph should intend to protect our home.
    Thank you.”
