What is sustainable development? What is the role of the audiovisual production industry when it comes to such complex issues as climate change? By looking at the history of international agreements and the most significant data of human impact on our planet, we will understand the concept of sustainability and apply it to our present time. In addition to this, we will define the most relevant goals of Sustainable Development for the industry and analyze examples of measures that can be adopted in each area to achieve productions with less environmental impact, assessing the current situation at filming stage, the limitations and challenges of taking sustainable measures and the benefits and advantages of it.
Organized by: International Environmental Film Festival – FINCA, Fiction Changing World – FCW and Cultural Center of Spain in Buenos Aires – CCEBA.
