Cinema 35, French Institute in Prague, Štěpánská 35, Prague 1
More and more filmmakers are becoming aware that filmmaking can have a significant impact on the environment and the locations in which it takes place. The term 'Green Filming' has become established for the whole process of crews trying to film sustainably, reduce air travel and document their carbon footprint. It is no longer just the efforts of foreign productions, as Czech filmmakers are also starting to follow this trend. In a panel discussion featuring, among others, the director of The Ants and the Grasshopper Raj Patel and the creative team of the Slovak documentary The Sailor, filmmakers will share their experiences of sustainable filmmaking – how did this choice influence the creative process? And can we expect the film industry in general to be more responsible on environmental issues in the future?
