No Planet B: Moving Towards a More Sustainable Film Industry - 15:00 BST, Thursday 22 October

The research organisation Global Footprint Network has reported that coronavirus-induced lockdowns have led to a nearly 10% reduction in humanity’s ecological footprint compared to in 2019. With much of the film and TV industry put on hold and international festival gatherings cancelled or moved online, our industry will certainly have contributed to this. But as the industry begins moving once again, how can this postitive decline be carried forward? A panel of filmmakers, producers and industry bodies discuss the effects that the film industry has on the planet, how film as art can create positive change, and explore the practicalities of reducing its carbon footprint.
