24/11/2020.- Asturias Paraíso Natural Film Commission and the Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival (FICX) are dedicating a specific session to sustainable production as part of the FICX Pro conference for professionals in the audiovisual sector. The aim is to encourage film and audiovisual professionals to adopt new methods of green production by means of practical advice, tools and success stories presented by specialists in the field.
In this sense, the Asturian Film Commission will present, tomorrow Wednesday 25, the initiative Filming in Asturias, Green Filming, a ten-point plan of action aimed at preserving the exceptional environmental surroundings of the Principality, committing to sustainable development practices and helping to reduce the environmental impact of audiovisual productions. The aim of this initiative, launched with the collaboration of the Vice-Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, is to make these projects more environmentally friendly, to benefit the environment and, in short, to develop sustainable activity at all levels in the areas where they take place.
The Regional Minister of Culture, Language Policy and Tourism, Berta Piñán, is participating in this meeting, which will be broadcast tomorrow from 12:00 onFICX.tv and the Facebook page of the Asturias Paraíso Natural Film Commission. This presentation will also be attended by Esmeralda Ruiz, head of marketing and environmental sustainability at the film production company Fresco Film, who will talk about the Warrior nun series, whose development as a sustainable film shoot we will learn about in detail, as well as the difficulties of being sustainable “in times of pandemic”.
As a complement to this round table, the free workshop “How to make your audiovisual production more sustainable” has been organised. From expert environmental consultant and Ecoadvisor in audiovisual productions Yanira Cáceres, this training proposal will try to explain why the audiovisual sector should contribute to sustainable development, how to limit the environmental impact of the productions in their surroundings and the benefits sustainable production brings, and provide information on the tools that the professionals from the sector have at their disposal to implement sustainability strategies in the different phases of an audiovisual project.
The workshop will take place at 17:00 online with free access by registering via the following link.
