Boosting sustainable film through international collaboration

Join albert and BFI at this international event which will be discussing how to accelerate environmental sustainability across the film, TV and streaming platforms sector.

Sustainability through collaboration

We’re proud to be part of this year’s EAO conference which is focussing on sustainability through collaboration.

Hosted by Tricia Duffy, Chair of the albert Directorate, this event seeks to bring together the international film industry to discuss how individual green efforts could be strengthened by reaching out across national borders.

The event is part of the UK’s presidency of the EAO for 2021. Each January a different Observatory member country takes over its yearly rotating Presidency. Previously the post was held by Morocco.


Join the event on Wednesday 9 June 1 30 - 4 30pm (BST)

The event will be moderated by Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London.



Sustainability represents a new topic for the Observatory’s work. I look forward to learning about needs for cross border co-operation on sustainability initiatives and potential ways to strengthen international collaboration in this key area for the audiovisual industry.

— Susanne Nikoltchev, Executive Director of the Observatory
