Berlinale: „Greening the film industry“

02/07/2012 - The Berlinale international film festival, starting this week, will host a debate on – as the program puts it – “Greening the film industry”. Protagonists of the creative industries “could become pioneers of change if they produce in a climate-friendly way and communicate this,” says Fritz Reusswig from the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research. The debate is part of an initiative of the Climate Media Factory, a joint research project of the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research and the Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen “Konrad Wolf”, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
