The BOBBY Award For Excellence in Cinematography.
Our friend, mentor, teacher and renowned cinematographer, Robert J. (Bobby) Riddell was called away from us on March 17th, 2012. We're pretty sure he's telling the Big Cheese what lights to use for every occasion. With the blessing of Bob's beautiful wife, Marilyn Riddell, the Edmonton International Film Festival has created THE BOBBY AWARD... a juried prize that will be presented to a cinematographer who shows promise as an emerging filmmaker and who works/lives with a gentle kindness that can be hard to find in the dog-eat-dog world of film/television. Bobby was all those things and more.
Charitable donations can be made to The BOBBY Award For Excellence in Cinematography through the Edmonton International Film Festival. Tax receipts will be issued by the end of this calendar year.
