Green Film Lab
Green Film Lab promotes environmentally sustainable practices in film production and gives film professionals a new perspective on how to apply a green protocol and achieve certification.
The aim of Green Film Lab is to create awareness about sustainability in the film industry starting from scratch.
Green Film Lab promotes environmentally sustainable practices in film production and gives film professionals a new perspective on how to apply a green protocol and achieve certification. The programme is addressed to film professionals with or without a project, professionals working in sustainability and delegates from film institutions.
Throughout the year, Green Film Lab proposes a number of 3-day residential workshops held in different European regions, delivered to film industry professionals with or without a project, as well as to professionals working in sustainability.
Each 3-day workshop kicks off with a general introduction to sustainability in the film industry, after which participants are divided into groups, working on applying the best green practices to their project. Through a practical, project-based and hands-on approach, participants will work in teams, discussing how to apply the current best practices in terms of energy-saving, transport, accommodation, catering, set decoration, waste management, recycling and communication. They will also be asked to consider social aspects, such as the impact on communities. In addition, they will network with other regional and European professionals who share their interest in sustainability.
Throughout the workshop, each team will work and practice simulating the development of a sustainability plan to achieve green certification. The training course will be enriched by case studies and plenary sessions dedicated to different aspects of sustainability.
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.
AFTER THE WORKSHOP DO I BECOME A SUSTAINABILITY MANAGER?
Unfortunately no, BUT it’s indeed a good start! The purpose of Green Film Lab is to create awareness on sustainability in making movies (film, doc and TV series) and give you some insight into best green practices on set.
DO I RECEIVE A SUSTAINABILITY MANAGER CERTIFICATION?
Since you will not be certified as a sustainability manager on completion of this workshop you will not, but you will receive a certification of participation worth framing.
DOES THE WORKSHOP INCLUDE TRAINING ON CARBON FOOTPRINT CALCULATION?
We would love to, but our 3-day schedule is quite busy as it is and there’s no room for a whole training on carbon footprint calculation. Who knows, maybe in the future!
