FilmFellas Cast 6

The DP Edition

The DP Edition features an eclectic mix of cinematographers from all areas of the independent film scene: Robert Primes, ASC BSC (Thirty Something), Trent Opaloch (District 9), Philip Bloom (If I were Prime Minister) and first time host Jens Bogehegn. The dynamics of such an award winning cast of major players brings forth lively round table discussions from a unique set of perspectives and diverse points-of-view.
