We are still beaming from all of the international exchange we were able to the embrace at the Cannes Film Festival, and we are already planning for our next green filmmaking trip abroad! On Saturday June 14th, and Sunday June 15th the Green Film Making Project will be in Romania for The Pelicam International Film Festival, and we will be hosting two workshops on the do’s and dont’s of green filmmaking. Do, do, do join us!

The workshops will discuss the lucrative solutions and innovative technologies that are currently available to the film industry, throughout all levels of production. Professional Dutch Director Brechtje Smidt, will also be on hand to share personal experiences and examples related to the sustainable production of films “Going South”, and “Balance”; the latter was proposed for The Oscars by the Eye Film Institute Netherlands, in the Best live Action Short Film section.

The workshops encourage participants to think innovatively and ‘ahead-of-the-curve’, in order to open industry doors and opportunities. Set yourself ahead of the rest, and see what all of the green filmmaking buzz is about, join us in Romania!

About the Pelicam International Film Festival

This year marks the third edition of the Pelicam International Film Festival, and it will take place in Tulcea, Romania from the 13th to the 15th of June, 2014.

The Pelicam International Film Festival is a leading festival for film with content regarding people and the environment. The festival’s focus on the environment aims to meaningfully inform audiences, while generating ideas, and possible solutions for sustainable development. It consists of film screenings, open-air concerts, workshops, photo exhibitions, and discussions/seminars.

The first two editions of the festival have seen films like “Gasland” (USA, 2012) and, “More Than Honey”(Switzerland, 2013), brought to their Romanian premiers.

The festival has also been a member of the Green Film Network since 2013; twenty-two film festivals around the world are part of this network, and are united by the goal of raising environmental awareness.

Entrance is free of charge for all screenings and events that take place.
