Green Film Consultant Austria

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


In many countries, the Green Film Consultant is already establishing itself as a new film profession. This is why LOWER AUSTRIAN FILM COMMISSION – LAFC, together with Philip Gassmann/Green Film Tools, is bringing certified training and further education for filmmakers to become professional Green Film Consultants to Austria.

The training includes three modules lasting several days, the time between the modules is used for self-study of the previously taught content and a project work with a practical focus. Finally, there is an examination by Philip Gassmann.

The training that Philip Gassmann developed last year and is already successfully teaching together with the IHK Munich serves as a model. The existing concept was tailored to the Austrian sector in cooperation between Philip Gassmann and the LAFC with the involvement of Evergreen Prisma and effective network partners. The practice-oriented module system creates a uniform qualification for professional filmmakers, which is necessary for an effective and comprehensive implementation of green filming. .

Green filming will soon become compulsory for the film industry in Europe, in Germany as early as 2022. Professional know-how for the sustainable implementation 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.

The LAFC educational programme of Green Filming is specifically tailored to filmmakers and practice-oriented. The aim of our 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 with its tools for practice, filmmakers are prepared and supported in a fact-based manner through the LAFC’s comprehensive green service and networking for this forward-looking field.

The training to become a Green Film Consultant Austria, which is offered exclusively by the LAFC, is officially recognised by the national film funding bodies ÖFI, BMKOES and FISA as part of their funding activities. In order to enable filmmakers in Austria to get started with Green Filming, the costs are covered by the LAFC.

Interested filmmakers with the relevant previous knowledge are welcome to contact our colleagues at the LAFC via email at and if they have any further questions.
