In 2015, The Green Film Making Project Thanks You!

Since its inception three years ago, our Green Film Making Project has been initiating the development, and spread of knowledge related to more sustainable production practices. As a result of this project, Dutch film professionals have grown to see the importance and benefit of sustainable film production – green filmmaking has truly ‘landed’ within the Dutch industry. Moving forward into 2015, The Green Film Making Project will continue forth in a new form. As of Jan. 1st 2015, the Netherlands Film Fund (one of the partners of The Green Film Making Project) will be facilitating the first official Sustainability Manager for the Dutch film industry: Els Rientjes. It is Rientjes who will carry the green filmmaking ‘baton’ forward in 2015, as she develops and supports a structural framework through which the whole of the industry, can produce more sustainably. And we are extremely proud of this development! For the past three years, we have worked extensively on sharing our sustainable solutions and knowledge within the film industry. We have invited national and international experts from a variety of innovative businesses, to come and share their stories with the production professionals. Alongside producers, we have looked for specific solutions and ways to reduce carbon emissions in film production, from within the Dutch context. We have shared our findings, and pool of knowledge through a series of workshops, seminars, social media channels, websites, news letters, and in the national media. Our cumulative knowledge has even been compiled for future green filmmakers, and is accessible via the first Dutch sustainable film production guide: ‘How to Green Your Film Production (so far)’.

Daniel got his start in sustainable filmmaking as a competitor during the 2013 professional edition of our Green Filmmaking Competition. And since then, he hasn’t looked back in becoming one of the greenest, sharpest, and most cutting edge filmmakers that the Netherlands has to offer. This year, he joins our 2014 competition as well.

For the 2013 Green Filmmaking Competition, Daniel produced the film Stand by Me in conjunction with the NTR and The Netherland’s Film Festival‘s KORT! film program. But, Daniel was no stranger to the principles of sustainable production even before the competition. His commercial film company Company Films had already been endorsing more resource efficient ways of managing production, for years. In the world of commercials, sustainable production makes more obvious sense: it looks better for business, and it saves money on short but high budgeted projects. But, to apply the principals of sustainable production to his film company ALP, required revelation that came about during his engagement with The Green Filmmaking Project. Bringing Green Consciousness to the Film Business, for the Film Business “Oddly enough, I was already working towards sustainability at home and in my day to day life.
