Filmmakers Release Sustainability Code
A new Code of Best Practices for Sustainable Filmmaking has been developed to help filmmakers assess and reduce the carbon footprints of productions.
The code was created by Filmmakers for Conservation (FFC) and two centers within American University’s School of Communication: the Center for Social Media and the Center for Environmental Filmmaking. It contains checklists detailing specific steps toward sustainability, and CO2 trackers to chart production emissions and waste.
“This code is the first clear, comprehensive guide in sustainability supported by scientific review and specifically designed to account for the challenges filmmakers face on a daily basis,” said Larry Engel, coauthor of the code.
