- to represent the professional, financial, moral and social interests of cinematographers and filmmakers in general;
- to prolong the life and availability of films; develop and promote worthy technical alternatives to their “beyond-the-cinema” afterlife;
- to participate in the development of the principles and practice of film-archiving together with the Hungarian National Film Archive;
- to have technical and professional presentations and testing, and get acquainted with/introduce new camera/lamp/grip devices;
- to specify the technical parameter requirements of television broadcasting (image size and quality, captions, logos in the picture, interruptions);
- to present (technical) literature we consider important via the ‘bookshelf/recommended literature’ section of our website (as does ASC);
- to actively participate in cinematographer training, in educating the next generation;
- to represent the majority opinion of our profession in relevant issues.
Since cinematographers traditionally occupy the junction point between the artistic and technical realisation of films, our organisation also aims to promote dialogue between the various representatives of the film industry, to expand meeting surfaces and re-create the experience of belonging together.
