Green Filming

Austria has a number of unique and beautiful landscapes which we want to protect and keep alive for a responsible film industry. Several film commissions and funds offer support in green consulting, and measures to integrate monetary support for green filming are currently being developed.

FISA has adopted its Cultural Test to include an emphasis on eco-friendly measures in green filming.

There are various approaches to sustainability that cover a film’s entire production chain. The CO2 footprint can be easily reduced by cutting back on unnecessary transportation, implementing efficient waste management and using recyclable materials for set construction and catering, to name just a few possible measures. Not to forget, filming responsibly not just helps the environment, it also saves production costs and enables new approaches to creativity with alternative and energy-saving equipment.
