‘Sustainability first’ is the motto of the green production panel at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival that Green Film Shooting and Cine-Regio Green are hosting in cooperation with Italian Film Commissions and Cinecittà Luce. Environmentally friendly practices can be implemented in the workflow of any film production ― from short films and low-budget productions all the way up to big Hollywood blockbusters.

The panellists include Audrey Dana, Actress, Writer/Director (Si, j’etais un homme, La chef de service hôpital moderne) who is also the Ecoprod Ambassador.
The producers include Marta Donzelli (Le Quattro Volte, Sworn Virgin) from Vivo Films in Rome, New York-based PGA Green founder and producer Lydia Pilcher (Queen of Katwe, The Lunchbox), as well s Germany’s 2017 Producer on the Move, Verena Gräfe-Höft (Antboy, Nothing Bad Can Happen). From Italian also comes Peter Mercias who will present his film Strollica at the Short Film Corner in the Cannes Market.
Various members of the Green Cine-Regio Group will share their expertise in the discussion. Among them is Nevina Satta, CEO Sardegna Film Foundation, Joanna Gallardo – Adviser, Ecoprod, CEO, Ile-de-France Film Commission, Christiane Dopp, Project Manager Green Shooting Card, Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, Luca Ferrario – Project Manager, Trentino Film Fund and Vice President Italian Film Commissions, and Pedro Barbadillo, Managing Director, Mallorca Film Commission .
