Sustainable Production Forum
IMPACT | FILMS+
October 5-6, Vancity Theatre
Sustainable production is the future of filmmaking and the screen-based storytelling community can shift business-as-usual practices and contribute to the global conversation about sustainability.
As the world's first and leading conference focused on advancing the greening of the motion picture industry, Vancouver International Film Festival's Sustainable Production Forum provides a platform to explore, exchange and drive change at all levels of the motion picture eco-system. In 2018, we're expanding the Forum to include 2 days with a focus on sustainable development goals, advertising and on-screen impact, sustainable physical production, motion picture stewardship and sustainable production awards.
