Kovacs has student pics in viewfinder

Top prizes are trips to Cannes Film Festival

Laszlo Kovacs will judge the 2004 Kodak Filmschool Competition for students and recent graduates in the Asia Pacific and Latin American countries.

Top prize for winners in each region will be a trip to the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, where clips of their films will be screened at the annual Kodak Emerging Filmmaker Showcase.

“It means a great deal to the young filmmakers who are vying for this award to have their work judged by Laszlo Kovacs,” said Kodak’s Wendy Elms.

Kovacs studied at the Academy of Drama and Film in Budapest. He migrated to the U.S. as a political refugee in 1956 and shot ultra-low budget films before breaking in with “Easy Rider” in 1969.

The cinematographer’s credits include “Five Easy Pieces,” “The King of Marvin Gardens,” “Shampoo,” “Paper Moon,” “Ghostbusters,” “Mask” and “Miss Congeniality.”

Kovacs has received lifetime achievement awards from the American Society of Cinematographers and the Camerimage Intl. Festival of the Art of Cinematography.
