Let’s talk about sustainable choices and tools in future film productions.
The film industry is not climate neutral. Film and series productions consume energy, produce waste, and use materials and resources, but the good news is that we can make film production more sustainable. With the panel No Planet = No Film, we would like to inspire producers and creatives to use green tools and follow green case studies. We can all contribute to the conservation of Nature!
Who is it for: creative producers, directors, and all creatives interested in sustainable production.
Producer and Founder/CEO, Silverart (Slovakia)
Katarina Krnáčová is film producer based in Bratislava, Slovakia, running her company Silverart. She is the Vice President of the Slovak Film and Television Academy, member of EFA, an EAVE graduate and Producers on the Move participant. She produced Little Harbour, the Berlinale Crystal Bear-winner, children film Summer Rebels (Best Children Film Award by German Film Critics) and co-produced Saving The One Who Was Dead (main competition at KVIFF 2021) and How I Learned to Fly (Best European Film at BUFF). Currently her line-up includes five feature films in development or production and a high-end TV series. Her last feature, a road movie Stand Up was the first Slovak film shot green. The film crew agreed to follow „Ten Green Commandments” – ten simple rules defined for the production. Katarina also worked in a team preparing the Green Manual for Slovak audiovisual industry.
Sustainability coordinator, Flanders Audiovisual Fund (Belgium)
“Having an environmental background, I feel somehow atypical in the audio-visual sector.” After working as an environmental scientist and policy expert for a federation of reuse companies, Tim Wagendorp has been the sustainability coordinator at the VAF since March 2017. “My main focus is on VAF-supported film and media productions, but I also raise awareness at other VAF-related areas like at physical cinemas, during the screenwriting process, games, animation and in education. We use the Sustainable Development Goals as a moral compass for our work. We exchange our knowledge as much as possible and play an active role within Green Screen (and EURECA), Cineregio and EFAD.”
