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!

For the last 2 years we have been developing a special Harvest Map for Film & TV, with an overview of all the sustainable options for clean energy on set. With the help of different Dutch film commissioners, we have gathered information on close to 150 public power points that can be accessed by film crews. Additionally, on the map you will find different green vendors that offer mobile sustainable energy sources. The Harvest Map is now online and open to anyone! www.filmoogstkaart.nl

If you have any comments or you would like to add information to the site through your own account, contact us.

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!

Green Film Making focused on clean energy on set during a special workshop on November 5th 2019 in Mediamatic in Amsterdam. Check out our new Harvest Map here!
