Capacity Building Seminar: Sustainability In The Audiovisual Industry
24 November 2022
Tallinn, Radisson Collection Hotel (Rävala str 3)


We kindly ask you to register only if you are sure to attend the event and to prevent us immediately if for any reason, after registration, you will not be able to attend it. To attend the event is not necessary to be accreditated to the Black Night Film Festival or Industry@Tallinn & Baltic event.


We all talk about it, but what does it take actually to be green? We have green production plans that we are not able to put into practice, or that don’t reach their full potential. Where is the system failing, or rather - where is the gap between the needs, the offer and the demand?
