This panel asks the question: what might sustainable storytelling look like for the film industry? How can screen content and production, in both policy and practice, give back rather than take from the environments and communities?

Join Libby Penmann (wildlife documentary filmmaker and We Are Albert ambassador), Itandehui Jansen, (documentary filmmaker, researcher at the University of Edinburgh and finalist in the AHRC’s Research in Film Awards 2021), and Mairi Claire Bowser (Screen Sustainability Manager for Scotland) as they discuss the role of sustainable screen content in Scotland. They will share their expert knowledge on the impacts of documentary and wildlife filmmaking, the importance of a people-centric approach when exploring themes of landscape protection, and how these wider themes connect and can be applied through policymaking.
