This year, 2019, will be the 4th consecutive Sustainable Production Forum. Each year the SPF sees significant participation from industry members including major studios such as FOX, Warner Bros., NBCUniversal, Disney, and Sony Pictures. The forum also draws members from all other areas of the industry, from government film permitting offices, to small indie productions, to producers and crew members. The SPF was originally launched as a collaboration between Green Spark Group and the Vancouver International Film Festival.
The intent of the forum is to curate informative, inspiring, and engaging content that can apply to all areas of the industry, and spark lasting change. When we gather all of the industry's numerous stakeholders in one forum, under one topic, incredible innovation occurs organically through connection with this community. The forum helps break down barriers within the industry and fosters a culture of collaboration that continues long after the SPF ends.
