Retrospective on the Green & European Workshop
CinEuro and the MFG Baden-Württemberg have chosen the Studios du Rhin in Strasbourg to organize their last event of the year: Green & European: Sustainable Innovation in motion picture
Professionals and representatives of different branches of the film and audiovisual industry from Europe met to discuss the current challenges of eco-responsible international co-production.
The presentation and study of a European co-production shot in an eco-responsible manner introduced and illustrated the new standards for filming, as well as the new obstacles linked to these changes. Secondly, a round table discussion moderated by Sonia Hausséguy (Crew United), on national directives, regulations, but also on the topic of carbon calculators was an opportunity for the actors present to exchange with the various speakers:
- Zsófia Szemerédy, Albert
- Tim Wagendorp, Eureca
- Thierry Hugot & Antoine Prost, Eurimages
- Alissa Aubenque, EcoProd
- Hemini Mehta, EBU
- Cédric Lejeune, Workflowers
In a third step, representatives of six start-ups had the opportunity to present their innovative Greenshooting solutions in front of an interested audience of professionals, and a jury that finally selected the Brussels-based start-up The GreenShot and its application that both keeps production costs under control and calculates the carbon footprint of the shoot in order to reduce it.
The Green & European event successfully closes a new year rich in events and new partnerships.
