Flinckenberg, Khondji and Landin Nominated for ASC’s Spotlight Award

In a continuation of last year’s initiative to shine the spotlight on non-mainstream achievements, the American Society of Cinematographers has nominated three d.p.s for its Spotlight Award, designed to recognize work “in features and documentaries that are typically screened at film festivals, internationally or in limited theatrical release.”

The three nominees are Peter Flinckenberg for “Concrete Night” (“Betoniyö”), Darius Khondji for “The Immigrant” and Daniel Landin for “Under the Skin.”

Landin was honored in April at the Newport Beach Film Fest as one of Variety’s 10 Cinematographers to Watch.

“These nominees have created some of the more inspiring and imaginative visuals our members have seen recently,” said ASC Awards chair Lowell Peterson in a statement. “We’re proud to recognize their innovative work, and we hope at the same time to raise the profile of these films, so more audiences have a chance to see their outstanding imagery.”

Last year, Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski won the inaugural ASC Spotlight Award for “Ida,” which is one of the current five nominees for Oscar’s foreign-language kudo.

This year’s winner will be announced at the 29th annual ASC Awards, to be held Feb. 15 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
