Since its foundation back 1992 IMAGO envisioned that a European structure would better suit European cinematographers in years to come. This proved to be right. The institutions representing the European Union are in fact conceiving all policies, including those concerning film industry.
Celebrating its 15 th year of existence IMAGO has strengthened the bonds between its several society members. Therefore, we think it's time to create “The European Model Contract” for cinematographers. The aim is, on one hand, to bring closer the different cinematographer's nationalities working in European Union territory, and on the other, to give each cinematographer equal authorship rights and working conditions.
