Taking the film industry into the future
The Green Film Making Project, a Strawberry Earth initiative, challenges film professionals to work more sustainable. Since 2012, the Green Film Making Project collaborates with production companies, sustainable entrepreneurs, film schools and leading institutes in the film sector.
We aim to inspire filmmakers to take the film industry into the future. With this organically growing blog we connect you to the latest international news and inspiration in the field of green filmmaking and sustainable production news.
Find best practises in our toolkit, meet inspiring experts in the field of green filmmaking in our Who’s Who section and check out video registrations of our events. In the third edition of the Green Film Making Competition we work together with European students. We encourage young filmmakers to come up with innovative sustainable solutions for on-set.
Hurray! Please bring in the band because our creators at Strawberry Earth, who inspire people from all over
the world to make sustainable choices both at home and at work, have a brand new website! Check it out for all of the latest sustainable happenings within the creative industries; fashion, design, art, food, and of course, film!
