Recently, European, UK and the US screen sectors have led the charge in creating meaningful behavioural change around sustainable production practices, and now Australia is not far behind. Agnieszka Moody (BFI); Helen Panckhurst (Matchbox Pictures), Sacha Gregson (ABC), and Catherine Bradbury (Fremantle Media Australia) join Dr Belinda Burns (Screen Queensland) for a candid conversation about the benefits and challenges of greening our screens. Each panelist will unpack how they have embraced the ‘Green Is Good’ ethos and what they have learned along the way – from surprise cost benefits and the power of collective bargaining to the importance of bold leadership. This session will provide practical examples of how screen productions and companies can make small changes that will have big positive impacts for our planet.
SCREEN FOREVER is proudly supported by the Queensland Government, through Screen Queensland.
Screen Producers Australia respectfully acknowledges the people of the Yugambeh language region, the traditional owners of the lands on which we met. We thank the traditional custodians for welcoming us all onto their lands.
We acknowledge and pay respects to them and all their descendants both past and present. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the local area and have made an important contribution to the community.
