VIFF 2017 Sustainable Production Forum | Impact
Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Motion pictures are part of our culture, providing a powerful medium for entertainment and education. Any genre, from features to shorts, documentaries to animation, go through the production process. Resources are used every step of the way, whether it be in the supply chain, fuel, lumber, energy, water, paper or human resources, these have an impact. The nature of filmmaking allows for vast creativity yet there can also be vast resource use if left to business as usual.
Climate change is widely thought of as the number one threat facing humanity. It is critical for the motion picture industry to consider how it will adapt. The risks of climate change will likely affect global supply chains, goods and services used as well as our locations and processes for making entertainment.
Admission to the Sustainable Production Forum is FREE. Register in advance.
