CST honors technician talent at the 77th Cannes Film Festival

The CST (Commission supérieure technique de l’image et du son) recently unveiled its award recipients for the 77th Cannes Film Festival. Year after year, these awards celebrate the indispensable creative and technical expertise of cinema technicians, highlighting their pivotal role in bringing directors’ visions to life.

This year’s winners are:

– CST Award for Best Artist-Technician: Daria d’Antonio, cinematographer for Paolo Sorrentino’s “Parthenope”.
– CST Award for Best Young Female Film Technician: Evgenia Alexandrova, cinematographer for Noémie Merlant’s “The Balconettes”.

Established in 1951 as the “Grand Prix Technique”, which acknowledged technical excellence across a body of work, the award evolved into the “Prix Vulcain de l’artiste-technicien” in 2003. In 2019, it took on its current form, the “CST Award for Best Artist-Technician”, honoring individual technical artists.

The CST Award for Best Young Female Film Technician aims to promote gender equality in the film industry and spotlight the outstanding contributions of young female technicians. This marks the third edition of the award.

The winners will be presented with a photograph from Dolorès Marat’s personal collection at the CST Awards ceremony in the autumn.
