press release

Green Film Lab keeps on training European cinema professionals on green practices with the third call for applications of 2022. The programme - promoted by TorinoFilmLab and GREEN FILM in collaboration with EAVE - will unfold with a new workshop in Sitges (Spain) from 14th to 16th October thanks to the collaboration of Government of Catalonia, Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies, Catalunya Film Commission and Servei de Desenvolupament Empresarial.

Overall, Green Film Lab includes a number of intensive 3-day workshops, held in English, that take place along the year in different European countries and regions, in collaboration with various film institutions and funds, proposing a comparable structure.

Green Film Lab targets

  • European production teams developing a fiction or documentary feature film - at an advanced stage of development - who are willing to make their shooting more sustainable
  • film production professionals eager to hone their skills on how to work on environmentally friendly audiovisual productions
  • green managers interested in learning how to apply their expertise to film sets.

We especially welcome applications from teams who got support from the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies and/or teams who will shoot in Catalunya.

The applications to participate can be submitted until 1st September, here.

The participation is free of charge, however, the attendees must cover their travel and accommodation costs.

GREEN FILM LAB aims at a more sustainable audiovisual industry and it is truly committed to changing mindset and habits regarding environmental issues in the field.

Each workshop is open to 24 participants selected to work in groups under the guidance of green manager tutors with wide experience in film industry, on feature film projects almost ready to begin filming.

Through a practical, project-based and hands-on approach, the 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.

The training is based on the Green Film Rating System and its two main features: the sustainability plan and the certification process for audiovisual projects.

Green Film Lab Head of Studies is the Italian producer and TFL alumnus Giovanni Pompili that works with Louise Marie Smith (UK), founder and managing director of Neptune Environmental Solutions and with Morgane Baudin (France), producer, consultant and trainer on sustainability for film & TV.

Green Film Lab is a programme by TorinoFilmLab and Green Film, promoted by the National Museum of Cinema and Trentino Film Commission, in collaboration with EAVE. Supported by Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme.
