Take on Film & the Green Deal

Within the European Union, 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 central question in this panel discussion is: how can filmmakers and producers produce 'green'? What means are there to get the 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 case study BIG OIL vs THE LAW, we address the issues surrounding green filmmaking along with several guests. Furthermore, the panel discusses the role of storytelling in climate activism with a special focus on using humour to engage an audience. Speakers include Maria Silvia Gatta (Policy Officer Creative Europe MEDIA - European Commission), Bernadette Kuiper (Impact Makers & Warming Up) and Sam Haygarth (actor, climate activist and writer of the short film Extinction).
