Cameramaker will select from LAFF, Spirit nominees

Winners of the competition, open to Film Independent fellows, LAFF alums and Spirit Award nominees and winners, will be lent Canon Cinema EOS C300 camera packages to use on their next feature-length narrative or documentary pics (or short films, in special cases).
