Sustainable Production Forum

VIFF’s Sustainable Production Forum was the first-of-its-kind in North America at a major film festival. Sustainable production is the future of filmmaking and the Vancouver International Film Festival was a wonderful platform to showcase this.

There was an amazing line up of speakers including: Mayor Gregor Robertson, X-Files director Chris Carter, the sustainability executives from major studios in Los Angeles, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), Creative BC, the World Bank’s Connect4Climate, sustainability practitioners in New York (Earth Angel) and BC (Keep it Green Recycling and Green Spark Group) and the Vancouver Economic Commission and the green economy. There was even a training session at lunch to help those on set implement recycling systems, understand the supply chain and learn how to reduce greenhouse gas emission. It was a great day!
