IMAGO is the International Federation of Cinematographers, a collaborative, global umbrella for the world´s Cinematographers Societies. It was created initially in 1992 by France(AFC), England(BFC) , Germany(BVK) and Italy(AIC) under the initiative of famous cinematographer Luciano Tovoli aic to bring European cinematographers together to discuss and find solutions to challenges of common interest, to promote the Art and Work of a

Cinematographer in a film at an international level, and to share and exchange experience and knowledge.

IMAGO, the International Federation of Cinematographers comprises of full members, associate and honorary members. The full and associated members are legal persons meanwhile the honorary members could be either legal or natural persons. The legal persons who are members of IMAGO are local cinematographers organizations or guilds, flagship workers organization from each country (one from each) which represent the highest standard of cinematography workers in each country

Most of the member organizations have an entrance threshold which guarantees that the natural persons who are the members of our member organizations are from professional working field of cinematography.

IMAGO is not a Union, but a Federation that works to inform and promote the importance and relevance of cinematography to the general public, film colleagues and the cultural- political environment. The interest shown by cinematographers worldwide to meet, discuss topics of high importance, technically and creatively, is rapidly increasing.


IMAGO is the international hub, and a direct connection between all National Cinematographers Societies Worldwide has never been more relevant.

As we are first and foremost a creative worker’s organization, we aim to help our members with networking, training, experience and knowledge sharing and feedback so that their interests are represented in local, national, European, international and global levels.
