PRODUCING FOR THE PLANET

ACTIONS THAT REDUCE COSTS

DIVERSITY DRIVES SUSTAINABILITY

< >

INDUSTRY ACTION IN A CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Industry leaders and representatives from municipal governments will discuss the risks and opportunities for the film industry in our current and developing climate crisis. Over 600 municipal governments across the world have declared a climate emergency, including the City of Vancouver. What are the implications for film production as these declarations develop into updated policies, plans, laws and regulations? How can film productions partner with municipalities to address, and adapt to, our changing climate?

Adopting a Circular Mindset

This session will focus on producers who reduce impacts across all departments by using a circular mindset. Hear real life examples and creative solutions of how to work towards zero waste, reduced emissions, and so much more. Learn from these sustainability powerhouses about how to take the lead, see your production as a system, and reduce impacts right now.

MONEY AND INTENTION

Want to find out about adopting sustainable practices without compromising the creative process or content? Hear from producers and leaders in environmental practices who have taken action on production to reduce their environmental impact, and saved money in the process. The panel will not only discuss cost savings directly associated with changes on individual productions, but also explore the true costs of waste, inefficient production practices and climate change, and how investing in sustainability now saves money (and the planet) down the line.

innovation, opportunity, and ingenuity

The industry has made great strides to increase and promote diversity in the last few years with the initial success of initiatives such as the Inclusion Rider. We have seen a positive shift towards a more inclusive industry, the effects of which can be felt across departments. Diversity of thought drives innovation, opportunity, and ingenuity—qualities that not only enrich storytelling but propel sustainable actions as well. Panelists will discuss the latest research and trends in this space, and push the conversation further: what more can we do?
