I always take an interest in Poland's annual Camerimage festival, the only international film fest dedicated specifically to the art of cinematography -- spanning both big Hollywood and small international productions. This year's Competition lineup is typically, unpredictably diverse: "Inside Llewyn Davis," "12 Years a Slave," "Rush," "Nebraska" and (somewhat less obviously) "Lee Daniels' The Butler" occupy the more mainstream end of the spectrum, while Mexico's Oscar entry "Heli," recent London Film Festival champ "Ida" and painstaking Edward Hopper homage "Shirley: Visions of Reality" are there to keep things interesting. "War Witch" and "Holy Motors" were among last year's winners. [Screen Daily]
