Cinematography Award to Fredrik Wenzel and The Quiet Roar
The Sven Nykvist Cinematography Award has been given to Fredrik Wenzel for his work on The Quiet Roar. Read the GIFF jury motivation here:
Sven Nykvist was known for his elegant combined use of dolly movement and zoom. The photographer we have chosen for The Sven Nykvist Cinematography Award moves his camera just as elegantly from one person to another, changing the perspective of what we see to what is also the perspective of the story being told.
Often with only a single light source, he highlights the actors and the outstanding production design. This, together with his excellent camera use, empowers him to illuminate the characters’ inner states, which can also be seen in some of the best work by Sven Nykvist. Thus, our congratulations go to Fredrik Wenzel for the cinematography in The Quiet Roar.
