The Green Film School Alliance Goes Global – American Film Institute


The Green Film School Alliance Goes Global

The Green Film School Alliance, of which the AFI Conservatory is a founding member, announced today the addition of 16 new schools to its ranks, more than doubling its membership to 27 sustainability-minded schools. These committed schools, across seven U.S. states and four countries on three continents, join the effort to lessen the environmental impacts of film production practices. With this expansion of the alliance’s commitment to teaching sustainable production to a wider group of schools, the GFSA is one step closer to making “green production” a standard practice for all filmmakers.

The GFSA also announced that 19 student projects from AFI have earned a 2022 Environmental Media Association’s (EMA) Green Seal for Students. The Seal is presented to student productions that achieve a minimum of sustainable production goals identified in the GFSA’s Production Environmental Actions Checklist (PEACHy) for young filmmakers, a guide to reduce waste and lower their carbon footprint. The first student film to use the GFSA’s tool and earn an EMA Green Seal for Students in 2021 was the AFI Thesis Film SHEDDING ANGELS which went on to win a Bronze Medal at this year’s Student Academy Awards.

Congratulations to all the filmmakers committed to “green” film sets!
