Austin Film Meet & the Blue Theatre Present
Sustainable Filmmaking Panel Discussion
A FREE Unofficial SXSW panel
Monday, March 15 – 7pm
At the Blue Theatre
916 Springdale Rd, Austin TX 78702
Please join us next Monday for a special SXSW edition of AFM’s weekly meeting to include a casual panel discussion on sustainable filmmaking and "filming green" with special guests from Los Angeles and New York. If you’re involved with film production, own or work at a local green business, or are just curious about filmmaking and its impact on the community and environment, you should attend.
Beyond the message a film portrays, Sustainable Filmmaking takes on the behind-the-scenes methods used during production with the goal of making them more environmentally friendly. This is a growing movement throughout the country and the world, and we are excited to have three active, accomplished members of this movement attending as our panelists:
Eva Radke, Founder/ President of Film Biz Recycling in NY (www.filmbizrecycling.org)
Lauren Selman, Founder of Reel Green Media in LA (www.reelgreenmedia.com)
and our own local Eco-Coordinator and Green Film Blogger, Marjorie Eber (www.miscellaneousrentals.com/GreenSet.htm)
Moderated by AFM Organizer H.Cherdon Bedford – (www.hcherdon.com)
-Provide perspective on what is currently being done to film green across the country
-Discuss the need to film green, the challenges eco-filmmakers face, and the support needed from local eco-businesses and filmmakers alike.
-Explain how this applies to indie/ low budget filmmakers, and what it means specifically here in Austin.
-Answer questions taken from the audience.
Sustainable Filmmaking affects every department involved in production, as well as the community in which it is filmed. No matter your role or involvement with film production, please do attend this event to learn more.
Filmmakers, environmentalists, or both – All Are Welcome!
FREE to attend – Donations Appreciated
Please support our generous venue by ordering food & drink, but come even if you can’t.
Hope to see many new and familiar faces there!
