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 in 2023
Case Study "How Did I Start to Think about Sustainability on Set?"
From plastic water bottles to idling transport vehicles, film production can be very reckless in its use of resources. Giovanni Pompili speaks about his long-standing experience as a producer - among his works Carla Simòn’s Alcarràs, winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale 2022, and Sole by Carlo Sironi, awarded as Best First Feature at the European Film Awards 2020 - with a background in Fair Trade and NGO’s and thanks to that too he always promotes green set policy and CSR.
Case Study "“Romulus” – Shooting a Period Drama Carbon Neutral?"
How can you decrease your carbon footprint while producing your next film or TV series? Taking season 2 of the successful Sky Original Series “Romulus” as an example, Green Consultant Lorenzo Vecchi from Zen2030 will show you some hands-on tricks and tools for how to recycle and reuse materials in film production, how to get green energy on set, and what else should be considered to achieve a carbon neutral production.
