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.

Professional training for the Austrian industry

Green Film Consultant – Not a part-time job

Green Filming will soon become obligatory for the film industry in Europe, in Germany already from 2022. Professional know-how for the sustainable realisation of film projects is essential against this background, in addition to the expansion of corresponding services (mobility, technologies, etc.) and increasingly represents an important additional qualification. In many countries, the Green Film Consultant is already establishing itself as a new film profession. This is why LAFC, together with Philip Gassmann, brought the certified training and further education of filmmakers to become professional Green Film Consultants to Austria.

 

The EVERGREEN ICON as a seal of quality

The LAFC’s Green Filming placement programme is specially tailored to filmmakers and practice-oriented. The aim of the training programme is to further promote the implementation of sustainable productions in the film landscape and to accompany them wherever possible. Hand in hand with the EVERGREEN PRISMA platform, the digital interface to the knowledge spectrum of Green Filming, filmmakers are prepared and supported for this forward-looking field in a comprehensive and factually sound manner through the LAFC’s training offer and (inter)national networking.
