Media is a global industry and Canadian cinematographers have taken a major role on the world stage. While Canadian productions are gaining recognition internationally, foreign producers are also taking advantage of the skilled craftspeople that our national talent pool can provide. The CSC Awards recognize the world class work being created at home and abroad by Canadian cinematographers.
