Panel Discussion: Sustainability in Series

At the panel discussion Sustainability in Series: Change is challenging
, producers, directors, production managers as well as film commissioners will share their experiences with green productions, discuss problems and solutions as a source of inspiration for filmmakers. Sustainable Film/ TV production starts with awareness and requires know-how, training, and tools. What are the biggest obstacles and how can they be solved? Is going green merely a burden for productions or can it also be a challenge that offers new opportunities? What practical solutions are there and what can be learned from neighboring countries? How is the process of going green received by a TV series? Can a production manager also take the responsibility for a sustainable production or is it better to hire an eco supervisor?
