As a training partner of the Rolling Green program, founded by the Quebec Film and Television Council, the Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables and Québecor, the Institut national de l’image et du son (L’inis) has developed a course on eco-responsible film sets. The aim is to raise awareness and encourage producers to reduce their environmental impact by providing information about the concepts and actions to develop in terms of eco-responsibility.
The objective of this course—a first in Quebec—is to teach participants about concrete, feasible ways to make a film set more environmentally responsible, and to help them develop the autonomy they need to seek out green solutions. Participants who completed the training session will be able to share their knowledge and put their learning into practice on film sets.
“Always attentive to the needs of the industry and committed to best practices in audiovisual production, L’inis is particularly proud to embark on a transition toward sustainability by offering the first training course aimed at film sets. Since training is one of the primary drivers of awareness, it’s essential that we do our part and take the necessary steps to help reduce the environmental impact of audiovisual productions in Quebec,” said Jean Hamel, Executive Director of L’inis.
“We are particularly pleased and grateful to have the support of L’inis for the Rolling Green program. This course is an essential step in our industry approach aimed at better supporting and equipping professionals in their transition to more environmentally responsible practices. It’s another major effort to accelerate the ecological transition of the audiovisual industry,” said Christine Maestracci, President and CEO of the Quebec Film and Television Council, the organization behind the Rolling Green program.
Training that’s both green and practical
At the end of the 3-hour course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the basic concepts in the transition to sustainability;
- Develop autonomy in the search for and use of tools;
- Identify the benefits of applying tangible environmental actions to a production;
- Prioritize environmental solutions according to their measurable contribution toward making a shoot environmentally responsible.
Offered twice, on Monday, April 4 and Wednesday, April 6, the course will be given by Caroline Voyer, Executive Director of the Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables and Mélissa de la Fontaine, advisor and facilitator for zero waste lifestyle and ecological transition.
The course is for all audiovisual workers who belong to any of the associations and unions that are members of L’inis. It was made possible by funding from the Commission des partenaires du marché du travail (CPMT).
