Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea and Thomas McCarthy’s Spotlight are among the line-up of special screenings out-of-competition at the 23rd Camerimage (Nov 14-21), the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography held in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz.

The line-up will also include a look back at the 1999 Anthony Minghella film The Talented Mr. Ripley, featuring a Q&A with the film’s editor, Walter Murch.

Camerimage has also announced a special award for this year, to be presented to cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and director Majid Majidi for their film Muhammad: The Messenger of God, which will have its European premiere at the festival.

The film is the first part of a planned trilogy that tells the story of the life of the Prophet Muhammad, presenting his childhood years and helps explain the roots of the Muslim religion and its message.

Storaro and Majidi will meet with the festival audience after the screening of their film on Nov 18, and the Outstanding Cinematic Duo Award will be presented to them at the Closing Gala on Nov 21.

Storaro is the award-winning Italian cinematographer who won Oscars for Apocalypse Now, Reds and The Last Emperor.

Majidi is one of Iran’s most influential directors, whose credits as director and writer include Children of Heaven, The Colour of Paradise, Baran and The Song of Sparrows.
