Festival

Robby Müller Award

The Robby Müller Award is a collaboration between IFFR, the Netherlands Society of Cinematographers (NSC) and Andrea Müller-Schirmer, Robby Müller’s wife.

Each year, the award honours an ‘image maker’ (director of photography, filmmaker or visual artist) who, in the spirit of the late Robby Müller, has created an authentic, credible and emotionally striking visual language throughout their oeuvre. During the festival, the winner is awarded a gallery print of one of Robby Müller’s rare Polaroids, as well as the opportunity to present a masterclass on their work.

Acclaimed American filmmaker Kelly Reichardt will receive the second annual Robby Müller Award, which will be presented during IFFR 2021 in February.
