Taking the film industry into the future

Green Film Making challenges film professionals to work more sustainable. From 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.

By doing so, she is continuing the work of the Green Film Making Project, a Strawberry Earth initiative, through a new foundation. 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.

Green Film Making has taken action together with Join the Pipe and the City of Amsterdam for the use of tap water on set! Film and TV productions can be sponsored to try this sustainable and cost-reducing innovation in catering. You can still participate until the end of May! Read the how and what here.


Join Green Film Making by taking part in our workshops, sign up your production for several pilots or hire Sustainability Manager Els Rientjes as a consultant and together create a sustainable design for your next project. Send her an e-mail! We are also always interested in new collaborations with sustainable entrepreneurs.

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)!
