Some of the most memorable images at this year’s festival were captured with a wide range of formats.



Our Sundance reportage this year covers three cinematography prizewinners, a visually distinctive feature from Bolivia, and the festival’s first 3-D feature. 

Director of photography Zak Mulligan used the Red One to capture Obselidia, for which he won the cinematography prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition. That contest was judged by a jury comprising ASC member Robert Yeoman, actress Parker Posey, author Russell Banks and filmmakers Karyn Kusama and Jason Kliot. 

Laura Poitras and Kirsten Johnson used a mix of digital formats to capture The Oath, for which they shared the cinematography prize in the U.S. Documentary Competition, judged by filmmakers Greg Barker, Dayna Goldfine, Morgan Spurlock and Ondi Timoner and journalist Nancy Miller. 

Michael Lavelle and Kate McCullough chose to shoot Super 16mm for His & Hers, for which they shared the cinematography prize in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. That jury comprised filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal, PBS News Hour correspondent Jeffrey Brown and film-festival director Asako Fujioka.
