Green Manifesto

Les changements climatiques et le développement durable sont des sujets que nous devons tou·te·s prendre en compte. La production audiovisuelle, au même titre que d’autres domaines d’activité, a également un impact sur l’environnement. Grâce à la mise en place de bonnes pratiques et à la prise de conscience des équipes de production, il est possible d’en atténuer les effets. Cinéforom, signataire du manifeste Green Regio, encourage tou·te·s les producteur·trice·s à s’informer et à utiliser les outils déjà mis en place, notamment en visitant le site où l’on trouve de nombreux conseils intéressants et fiches pratiques à télécharger.

Manifesto for Sustainable Filming

The CineRegio Green members, the sub-group for Green Filming of CineRegio, hereby present their joint statement, the CineRegio Green Manifesto:

With this statement, the supporting institutions wish to contribute to the awareness of Green Filming and of enhancing sustainable and climate friendly measures in film and television production and its funding.

Many professionals working in film and TV are concerned with environment and climate friendly production. There is, on occasion, uncertainty as to whether higher costs connected with sustainable production may be included in production budgets and whether they may be eligible for public sector funding.

As a matter of fact, Green Filming does not necessarily result in higher costs. Furthermore, innovation and advanced technology allow productions to work in an increasingly resource friendly and cost effective way.

However, if additional costs do arise through environmentally friendly filming, these costs should be eligible as part of the production budget. The CineRegio Green members recognize approaches to sustainable production and their associated costs and confirm their eligibility for public funding.

It is our declared goal to visibly promote sustainable policies and means and make them achievable for the film and television industry and its funding agencies.
