Duration: 10am – 5pm

Venue: Filmbase, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Cost: €0

Course Profile:

The Irish Film Board, Screen Training Ireland and Filmbase are delighted to host a Carbon Literacy for Production course with Albert, the BAFTA-supported environmental sustainability initiative for the visual arts.  The project aims to educate and provide industry colleagues with the necessary expertise and opportunities to:

  • reduce the environmental impact of the production process
  • create opportunities for audiences to engage with the climate agenda

The goal of Albert is to create ‘sustainable productions’, defined as those which have a positive impact on the people and places involved in its creation. It strikes for a continual reduction in carbon emissions and waste production, with a goal of zero emissions and waste. It shares its values with every aspect of the supply chain, including cast, crew, outside contractors/suppliers and its audience.

The carbon literacy for production course was developed by the Film and TV industry in the UK about two years ago. It aims to provide everyone in the industry with a sound knowledge of the scientific reality of climate change, its impacts and the challenges of the transition to a sustainable future. It also covers what we can do personally in our home life, the policy and business trends that form the background to our industry, before going through the detail of what it means for content producers. The whole afternoon is dedicated to better understanding the range of impacts of Film and TV production, and to presenting the best practice and solutions currently available.

Participant Profile:

This course is aimed at producers, line producers, production managers, location managers and any production personnel interested in enhancing their Carbon Literacy.
