Green Film Consultant Austria

The training to become a professional Green Film Consultant is available in Austria!

The in-depth training to become a professional Green Film Consultant for cinema & TV in Austria includes three modules lasting several days, in which Philip Gassmann teaches digitally together with the LOWER AUSTRIAN FILM COMMISSION – LAFC and their Evergreen Prisma. Lecturing guests from their (inter)national green network will also be present. Between the modules, the time is used for self-study and a project work with a practical focus. Finally, there is a written and oral exam by a rotating examining committee of experts and Philip Gassmann. After passing the final exam, participants receive the Evergreen Prisma certificate and a personal portrait in the LAFC Connective section.

In order to enable filmmakers in Austria to professionalise for green filming, the costs are covered by the LAFC.
