'Keen to be green', the German Film Commissions' event series on sustainable filmmaking, returns with a special English edition! Hosted in association with the Creative Europe Desks Germany, the event will examine practices of green shooting across Europe and how co-productions can guarantee sustainable filming across borders. 

Specifically reviewing Austria, Germany and France’s green filming standards for productions and particularly international co-productions, for example, how are these sustainable models and standards incorporated into national film funding systems? How do global co-productions ensure each country’s regulations are complied with while handling and maintaining a standard filming practice? And lastly, how are country specific standards implemented and complied with even when filming takes place abroad?

On Tuesday, 7th November 2023 from 11:00 to 13:00, the invited industry guests will give insight into case studies, what to do/not to do as well as offer practical assistance on the subject. 

We are therefore excited to announce the following panellists

Alissa Aubenque, Director of Operations / ECOPROD, France
