Green Awards

TorinoFilmLab has introduced two awards to support the reflection on the global changes affecting our society, and to encourage eco-sustainable actions on the production set. They are assigned to some ScriptLab and FeatureLab projects during the annual TFL Meeting Event in November.


TFL WHITE MIRROR - € 3,000 development award to a ScriptLab project 

Created in 2019 the award supports stories that tackle environmental issues, sustainability or any related changes happening in today’s world, through a personal and engaging tone – from new consumption habits to the different ways of life.
