MIFF 2022 HALYNA HUTCHINS TRIBUTE ANNOUNCEMENT
The 2022 Moondance International Film Festival is honored to dedicate this year’s film festival event to honor the life, the talent and the loving memory of Halyna Hutchins, Director of Photography, a well-regarded Ukrainian cinematographer who is credited with work on more than 30 projects, feature films, short films and TV miniseries, including the films Archenemy, Darlin’, and Blindfire.
Dedicating the 2022 Moondance to Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins is highly appropriate, since Moondance was originally founded in 1999 on the concept of honoring all the talented women writers, directors, cinematographers, editors, composers, producers, and all the other talented women behind the cameras in the international film and entertainment industry.
Ms. Hutchins was tragically killed while working as Director of Photography on a film location in New Mexico.
>> For Moondance 2022, and beyond, a very special honor, the Halyna Hutchins Moondance Award, will be offered to a winning woman cinematographer, who has submitted her film to the Moondance competition.
