“In most of her works, the signature of Hélène Louvart is recognizable from the very first glance and the very first shot. Louvart's gaze unfolds as a constant becoming, a physical, instinctive process of evolving and dissolving. Her visuals are effortlessly synchronised with the rhythm of natural breathing, as if they were shot from within and cross the very line between screen and viewer.” — Robby Müller Award Jury
In remembrance of Robby Müller and as a tribute to his legacy, the Netherlands Society of Cinematographers (NSC), the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), and Andrea Müller-Schirmer established the Robby Müller Award in 2020. The award is presented annually for exceptional artistic contributions to film. It honours an image maker who has created an authentic, credible and emotionally striking visual language. The aim of the Robby Müller Award is to stimulate originality and artistry in international arthouse cinema and to encourage today’s cinematographers and filmmakers to open their eyes and experiment, to find a more outspoken way of visual narration. Film is an art that has to progress, that has to evolve.
