I think it helps a lot to put into context the whole problem we are experiencing. It has been very interesting.

Green Film Lab promotes environmentally sustainable practices in film production and trains film professionals on how to apply a green protocol and get a certification.

Along the year, Green Film Lab proposes a number of 3-day workshops held in different European regions, addressed to film industry professionals with or without a project, as well as to sustainability managers.

Through a practical, project-based and hands-on approach, participants will learn how to apply the current best practices in terms of energy-saving, transport, accommodation, catering, set decoration, waste management, recycling and communication.

The programme has already brought the expertise of high-profile tutors to Trento (Italy), Palma de Mallorca and Sitges (Spain), Reykjavík (Iceland) and Dublin (Ireland). 


For more information, contact:


  • Film and series industry professionals (feature films, documentaries, tv series) who want to:

    - gain skills on how to apply the current best practices in terms of environmental sustainability by working on concrete projects and sustainability plans

    - acquire knowledge on how to assess a sustainability plan and give constructive feedback

    - know how to apply a common protocol and certification system shared through European borders that will facilitate co-productions, easy to use and already tested by various film and TV productions

    - boost their professional profiles, as sustainable productions will become more and more required by public institutions and funds in the coming years

    - deepen their knowledge on how to manage their sets to combine sustainability with financial and organizational efficiency

    - network with other professionals with whom they can exchange knowledge, contacts and different experiences on sustainability


  • Sustainability trainees who are film professionals interested in improving their skills in sustainable practices on set.

  • Sustainability managers with at least 2 years of experience in sustainability willing to get an intensive training on the audiovisual industry mechanisms. They will learn how to apply their skills on sustainability to film sets, working in close collaboration with film producers, and they will have the chance to get in contact with the film and series industry network. 

Each workshop is open to up to 24 participants selected to work in groups under the guidance of sustainability manager tutors with wide experience in the film industry, on feature film projects almost ready to start shooting. 




Each 3-day workshop kicks off with a general introduction to sustainability in film industry, then participants are divided in groups, working on the sustainability plan. Throughout the workshop, the groups work on a sustainability plan based on a film project, reaching its first version to be shared with fellow participants on the last day. The training course will be enriched by case studies and plenary sessions dedicated to different aspects of sustainability. Each group is headed by a sustainability manager tutor.


The contents are based on the Green Film Rating System and on its two main features: the sustainability plan and the certification process for audiovisual projects. A certification represents the possibility for producers to see their efforts recognized in a tangible way and Green Film allows the certification of sustainable audiovisual projects in all European countries, including co-productions involving filming in different countries.



Green Film Lab is a programme by TorinoFilmLab and Green Film, organised by the National Museum of Cinema and Trentino Film Commission, in collaboration with EAVE. The programme is realised thanks to the support of Creative Europe - MEDIA Sub-programme of the European Union.
