Camerimage to honor John Seale

Cinematographer has worked with Minghella, Weir

Cinematographer John Seale, best known for his Oscar-winning work with the late Anthony Minghella (“The English Patient,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”) and fellow Aussie Peter Weir (“Witness,” “Dead Poets Society”) will receive the Golden Frog Award for career achievement at the Plus Camerimage Festival, which is dedicated to the art of cinematography. The 18th annual fest in Bydgoszcz, Poland, runs Nov. 26-Dec. 3.

His work will be celebrated with the screening of a handful of films at the weeklong event, as well as a limited edition book published by Camerimage.

The fest, which attracts the cream of the d.p. crop from throughout the world, features three cinematography competitions: the main bar, student films and Polish films.

Seale, part of the Australian New Wave of the ’70s that propelled a slew of Down Under filmmakers to migrate to Hollywood, worked as a camera operator on such early Weir works as “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” “The Last Wave” and “Gallipoli.”

His subsequent d.p. credits included “Rain Man,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “The Tourist.”
