“We’re excited to celebrate a great year for the film medium. In an era dominated by digital content, artists who create with film — whether for features, television, commercials or music videos — continue to carve out a distinctive niche,” Vanessa Bendetti, Head of Motion Picture and Entertainment for Kodak, said in a statement. “The visual properties and process of analog filmmaking significantly contribute to a more profound connection between cinematic storytelling and the audience. This year’s honorees’ deliberate choice to shoot on film illustrates not only an appreciation for the analog art form but also a dedication to preserving its legacy.”
