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.

Join us by sharing your stories on sustainable innovation with other filmmakers around the world. This year we will continue to expand our international toolkit with tips and tricks for green filmmakers.

Sign up for our newsletter (Dutch/English) for the latest info, or one of our workshops.

We’re always interested in collaborating with sustainable entrepreneurs. Please share your thoughts via e-mail.
