Ecoprod & Green Film Shooting present:

New innovations for green production

Date: July 13, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.


11:00 a.m.  -  Are new technologies always more sustainable? 

The use of energy-efficient LED lights is often recommended as a best practice. But are LED lights, in any case, more energy-efficient or can the use of a traditional HMI light sometimes be a better solution? The state-of-the-art technology virtual production enables productions to create any kind of set in the studio, which reduces set decoration, mobility, and transportation to a minimum. But digital production requires saving huge amounts of data, which is energy intensive.

Experienced film industry experts will discuss advanced technological innovations and their real costs to the environment by considering their carbon footprint as well as their life-cycle assessment.

  •       Benoît Ruiz, Workflowers – France
  •       Nils Maier, Gaffer & CEO of the rental house Maier Bros – Germany
  •       Giovanni Pompeli, Producer & line producer, Kino produzioni – Italy
  •       Olivier Marchetti, CEO of Studio Provence – France


12:00 p.m.  -  What is (really) a green film? 

Ecological sustainability in film production is open to many different approaches. There are various methods and tools but no common standards or understandings, which raises the question of which criteria make a production green and how it can be certified as such. Is it enough to simply measure the carbon footprint? What can be done to avoid greenwashing in film production? Does eco-friendly film production also require green storytelling? And what is about social responsibility

Film professionals and representatives from film funds will debate the differences and difficulties of defining a green production.

  •       Alissa Aubenque, Ecoprod Coordinator – France
  •       Cyril Dion, Director (Demain, Animal) – France
  •       Katharina Retzlaff, German Federal Film Board – Germany
  •       Nevina Satta, Sardegna Film Commission – Italy



The Ecoprod & Green Film Shooting roundtables will take place online as part of the Cannes Marché du Film and will be streamed on Facebook.
