AWARD SCREENING: BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY, WORLD DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION: CONTEMPORARY COLOR

The award for Best Cinematography, World Documentary Competition goes to Contemporary Color, with cinematography by Jarred Alterman.

In the summer of 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an unprecedented event at Brooklyn's Barclays Center to celebrate the art of color guard—synchronized dance involving flags, rifles, and sabers—by pairing regional color guard teams with performers, including St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, and Ad-Rock. More than a concert film, the TFI-supported Contemporary Color is a cinematic interpretation of a one-of-a-kind live event, courtesy of visionary filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross.
