Bella Halben will be awarded with the honoary award of the German Camera Award 2023

This year's honorary award of the GERMAN CAMERA AWARD goes to cinematographer Bella Halben.

The statement of the board of trustees states: "Bella Halben gives her films - and thus also the audience - sensitive and strong images that go far beyond the mere visualization of the content and that literally look behind the story." The committee also shows itself impressed by Bella Halben's approach to work: "She puts her camera and her light in the background, but the story and the actors of the film in the foreground and lets them shine there. She loves using the handheld camera to get close to the performers' reactions. Bella Halben doesn't want to miss an acting performance."
