Polish Film Festival is the biggest celebration of Polish film. Each year, crowds of filmmakers and cinema-goers come to Gdynia for a few days. Similarly to other big events, it generates a carbon footprint. We need to minimise it, so we decided to change our habits and introduce ecological solutions to make the Festival greener.
Only conscious, systematic and long-term actions can make a real difference. Being green once in a blue moon is not enough. The changes we introduce will affect not only the Festival but will be cultivated by our team all year long at Gdynia Film Centre, the seat of the Festival’s Office and Pomeranian Film Foundation, the producer of the Festival.
Just as producers implement the rules of green film production, we have developed a set of environmentally-friendly solutions for the Festival and Gdynia Film Centre. We also joined the signatories of the Culture for Climate declaration, a grassroots initiative for the ecological functioning of cultural institutions.
