The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography Camerimage (Polish: Międzynarodowy Festiwal Sztuki Autorów Zdjęć Filmowych Camerimage) is a festival dedicated to the celebration of cinematography and recognition of its creators, cinematographers. The first seven events (1993–1999) were held in Toruń, Poland. The next ten events (2000–2009) were held in Łódź. Since 2010, the festival has taken place in Bydgoszcz. In 2007, the name of the festival was changed from Camerimage to Plus Camerimage but was changed back in 2013 after the sponsorship deal with Plus ended. At the end of November every year, Camerimage brings together professional cinematographers, students and other people associated with the film industry. The Camerimage festival spans over a course of one week, with multiple events at one time.

Since 2013, short documentary films awarded the Golden Frog during Camerimage festival are granted consideration in the Documentary Short Subject category of the Academy Awards without having to meet the standard theatrical run requirement. To meet all requirements, the running time limit of selected short documentary was decreased from 60 to 40 minutes. This way requirements for short documentary films selected at both Camerimage festival and the Academy Awards are the same.
