Submissions are open for the next Green Film Lab workshop, hosted by MIA
Green Film Lab promotes environmentally sustainable practices in audiovisual production and guides professionals on how to apply a green protocol and get a certification through 3-day workshops held in different European regions, in collaboration with film institutions and funds.

MIA is partnering with TorinoFilmLab - National Museum of Cinema and Green Film - Trentino Film Commission to host the third edition of Green Film Lab workshop, which will be held on the tail end of the ninth edition MIA International Audiovisual Market in Rome, from October 13 to 15, 2023.

The workshop, entirely held in English, is open to 24 participants among film and series industry professionals, to funds, film commissions and institutions delegates, as well as to professionals working in sustainability. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 4, 2023, 2:00 p.m. CET. The final selection will be disclosed by mid-September.

Through a practical, project-based approach, participants will learn how to apply to audiovisual production the current best practices in terms of energy-saving, transport, accommodation, catering, set decoration, waste management, recycling and communication. On top of that, they will network with other regional and European professionals who share their interest in sustainability. The training activities will be based on the Green Film Rating System and its two main features: the sustainability plan and the certification process for audiovisual projects.

Among the pedagogical experts involved: the Head of Studies Giovanni Pompili (producer and TFL alumnus), Louise Marie Smith (founder of Neptune Environmental Solutions), Lucie Trémolières (writer and director with a focus on different emotional responses to the environmental crisis), and Dörte Schneider Garcia (experienced assistant director and sustainability consultant).

Thanks to a long-lasting and effective collaboration with its sustainability partner, Green Film, MIA (Mercato Internazionale Audiovisivo) has been a certified sustainable event since 2019 and has a constant focus on implementing new programs and initiatives, aimed at promoting sustainability for greater industry awareness with respect to industrial production practices of audiovisual products, with a particular interest in reducing environmental impact, fostering industry education on zero impact, in line with the main green protocols adopted in Europe.
