Greening the Industry
Over the last few years, sustainability has evolved into more than just a buzzword. Audiovisual professionals nowadays are very aware of the impact their work has on the environment but often lack the knowledge or tools to improve and implement more sustainable methods without risking economic success.
This compact online seminar will offer them helpful strategies and tools to make their productions more environmentally friendly across all departments and will show that sustainability and economic success do not have to be mutually exclusive.

Case Studies "The Moths" and "Lipstick on the Glass"
It does not matter whether you operate a micro-budget or run a production for several million euros. The introduction of sustainable film production solutions is always possible and should be a priority given the progressive degradation of nature and the impending climate disaster.
During the case study, we will work on the micro-budget film of the European Film Award nominee Piotr Stasik - "The Moths", developed at the Biennale College Cinema in Venice. We will discuss practical solutions for green production, from working on the script, through choosing a location, to post-production. Everything under the slogan "Go green without money".
The second film we will tell you about will be the large international co-production "Lipstick on the Glass" dir. Kuba Czekaj. Here we will focus mainly on the method of communication of green production both in the production crew and outside for marketing and distribution purposes. We will tell you how to manage resources and what is the best way to allocate funds so that green production is not only not more expensive than conventional, but also reduces its costs.
Finally, we will look at ways to offset film production because even sustainable production leaves a carbon footprint.
