The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) is back at Cine Gear Expo, being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, for the first time since the pandemic.

Panelists will be Rebecca Rhine, National Executive Director of ICG, and Patrick Cady, ASC, Director of Photography, with Michael Chambliss, ICG Production Technology Specialist and Business Representative as moderator.
The panel will include short videos designed to build a broader awareness of some of the hazards on the set and will encourage audience members to join the discussion.
The second panel, entitled “Sustainable Production: The Path to Net Zero Climate Impact” will be held from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and is organized by Local 600 and their Green Committee. Panelists will be Diana Pokorny, Producer and a member of the PGA Green Production Guide Task Force, Jendra Jarnagin, ICG Local 600 Director of Photography, and Adrienne Pfeiffer, Sustainable Production Supervisor for Lucas Film.
