Where there’s a will, there’s a way. At least in theory. The path to a green festival comes with a lot of requirements. Many of the existing certifications are granted in stages; others are already outdated or designed for businesses or one-time events. Thus, a growing number of festivals in Austria are joining forces to adapt existing regulations.
2020 would have been the first year with a green strategy for Vienna Shorts. Festival co-director Daniel Hadenius-Ebner talks about goals, partial successes, and challenges. Introduced by Talking Shorts’ Emilia Mazik.
Produced by Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur
