Panel & Q&A ‘Film & the Green Deal’

Event during Movies that Matter festival 2021
Thursday 22 April 2021 14:00–15:00

Within the European Union, the programme Creative Europe MEDIA develops policy on greening the media, a theme that has a place at the Movies that Matter Festival, where climate issues are extensively discussed every year. The mission of the festival is to open eyes to human rights, sustainability and the fight against injustice. The central question in this panel discussion about film and the green deal is: how can filmmakers and producers produce “green”? What means are there to get the film industry moving in the right direction? Which financial and creative resources can be used to make a film environmentally friendly and responsible? This panel examines the bumps in the road and looks at best practices of productions that have already succeeded. 

In the context of the documentary Journey to Utopia, Lise Lense-Møller (the producer) will be part of an international panel addressing the issues surrounding green filmmaking, along with Kristýna Genttnerová (One World, International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival), Bassam Alasad (Creative Media Solutions), Maria Silvia (Creative Europe MEDIA Programme), Beadie Finzi (founding director of Doc Society), Jeroen van der Zalm (Dutch Film Fund).

De panel discussion is hosted by the Creative Europe Desks from Norway, Denmark and The Netherlands.
