Cinematographer to receive Society's President's Award

Guy Green, who won an Academy Award in 1946 for his cinematography in “Great Expectations,” has been chosen to receive this year’s President’s Award from the American Society of Cinematographers.

Green will be presented with the honor Feb. 20 at the 14th annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards dinner. Previous recipients include Linwood G. Dunn, Hans Koenekamp, Kemp Niver, William Clothier, Douglas Trumbull, Robert Duvall, Albert Maysles, Albert Mayer Sr. and Tak Miyagishima.

“We reserve this recognition for individuals who have made unique and exceptional contributions to advancing the art of filmmaking,” said ASC prexy Victor J. Kemper. “Guy Green earned the respect and admiration of peers for his artistry as a cinematographer, and for his long and unrelenting dedication to advancing this important art form. Guy was also a successful director, and he was one of the founders of the British Society of Cinematographers.”

Green’s first cinematography credit came in 1944 in “The Way Ahead” and he went on to acquire 20 credits as director of photography on such films as “Oliver Twist,” “Blanche Fury,” “Captain Horatio Hornblower,” “The Beggar’s Opera,” “Passionate Friends” and “I Am a Camera.”

He and Freddy Young founded the British Society of Cinematographers in 1949. Green has also directed 25 films for theatrical release and television, including “Desert Patrol,” “The Angry Silence,” “The Mark,” “Light in the Piazza” and “A Patch of Blue.”
