Call: Interreg-Europe 2nd call: Priority Axis 3 – Low Carbon Economy

Description:

“Green Shooting” is the topic chosen. We are continuing to work on the same sector. The project, however, is centred on environmental sustainability and business generation topics. It is led by Film London (www.filmlondon.org) and has seven other European partners. The project’s objectives are to improve environmental policies for the audio-visual sector and to share best practices on the environmental standards needed by the sector, mainly so that production companies (cinema, television, documentaries, etc.) adopt sustainable “green” measures/practices in production and distribution processes.

The project ensued from another Interreg IVC project (www.euroscreen.org) dealing with shooting/screen tourism. Each of the new project’s partners should align it within their region with the operational programme’s structural funds (ERDF) and specifically provide information, as set out in the operational plan which has been approved.
