Open Channel: Sustainable Filmmaking

Posted in Events by shortcourses on July 14th, 2009


The Australian film industry’s interest in environmental issues has manifested as ‘green’ content on our screens and in the environmental activism and philanthropy of filmmakers off screen, but little has been done to address the often significant environmental impact of the production process.  Open Channel’s Sustainable Filmmaking course aims to highlight the real impacts of film and television production and to provide participants with simple, cost-effective means to reduce the environmental footprint of their next production.

Course date: 15 August 2009

The convener of this seminar is Meg Argyriou.  Meg has extensive experience in the film and television industry and is currently completing an MBA with a specialisation in Environmental Sustainability.  She has also completed Australia’s only certified Carbon Accounting course through Swinburne University of Technology, and ResourceSmart training through Sustainability Victoria/ the Monash University Sustainability Institute.

This is an invaluable seminar for anyone who wishes to make films, responsibly.

Date: 15 August 2009
Time: 9:30am – 4:30pm
Location: Open Channel, Docklands, Melbourne
Fee: $95 Open Channel members, $120 non-members
