Green Film Lab



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.

In 2022 the programme has brought the expertise of high-profile tutors in Italy (Trento, 29th April - 1st May in collaboration with Green Film and Trentino Film Commission) and in Spain (Palma de Mallorca, 28th-31st July in collaboration with Mallorca Film CommissionFundació Mallorca Turisme and Consell Insular de Mallorca). The next workshops will be held in Sitges (Spain, 14th-16th October: applications open until 1st September in collaboration with Government of CataloniaCatalan Institute for Cultural CompaniesCatalunya Film Commission and Servei de Desenvolupament Empresarial) and in Reykjavík (Iceland, 7th-10th December in collaboration with Icelandic Film Centre, Film in Iceland, Inspired by Iceland and Business Iceland).

- know how to apply a common protocol and certification system shared through European borders that will facilitate their 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.

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.

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 begin filming.




Each 3-day workshop kicks off with a general introduction to sustainability in film industry, then participants are divided in two groups, each working on the sustainability plans for three projects. Every project’s team will be matched with a sustainability trainee and a producer without a project.
Throughout the workshop, the groups work on a sustainability plan, 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.

The residential workshop is followed by an online meeting that is scheduled when the teams are going into production, to discuss and check the final sustainability plan.


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 Museo Nazionale del 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.
