Taking the film industry into the future

Green Film Making challenges film professionals to work more sustainable. Since 2015, Sustainability Manager Els Rientjes has been facilitated by the Netherlands Film Fund and aims to inspire filmmakers to take the Dutch film industry into the future.

Green Film Making is making progress in collaboration with producers, sustainable entrepreneurs, film schools and other pioneers in the film industry. With this website we offer a platform for sustainable production through inspiring initiatives, innovative ideas and provocative news from home and abroad. Welcome!

A beehive on the roof of your company and your own honey at lunch every day? Yes, you can! And you contribute to the biodiversity of your own city at the same time.

You can have a beehive on your roof for just 500 euros and that includes a visit from beekeeper Dirk 10 times a year to take care of the maintenance. And don’t forget, you will get it back in honey. Want to know more? Continue here.

Join Green Film Making by taking part in our workshops, sign up your production for our pilots or visit us at festivals. Our Toolkit contains numerous tips and tricks to help you on your way with sustainable production. You can also share your experiences in the field of sustainable innovation with filmmakers from all over the world. And sign up for the newsletter (dutch)!

We are also always interested in new collaborations with sustainable entrepreneurs. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and share your small or big ideas!

Grab your spoons, Green Film Making zooms in on sustainable catering on set at a special workshop on the 20th of February 2018 in Blue City in Rotterdam.

We would like to invite caterers, location managers, producers and suppliers to brainstorm together about a new sustainable approach. Everything that happens around the catering car, who and what comes and goes, is subject of discussion. Want to get a slice of that pie? More details here.
