This year’s industry talks program opens with a pertinent, honest talk on the one topic affecting all of us in both our everyday lives and in the industry. Or is the topic of climate change affecting the documentary industry enough? This is one of the questions to be tackled in this talk, including perspectives from funders, filmmakers and industry event organizers. How is the documentary industry engaging with sustainability and climate change? Is it at all relevant to talk about sustainable production, when many documentary productions are small crews filming on the go? Are funders realistic about the sustainability demands put on documentary film productions? And how to be inclusive and global without travelling the world?
This panel dives into these questions and seeks honest answers to spark a wider debate.
Speakers: Phie Ambo (Viola Lucia Film), Gugi Gumilang (In-Docs), Rati Oneli (Office of Film Architecture) and Jeroen van der Zalm (the Netherlands Film Fund)
Moderator: Emma Davie (filmmaker)
