Greening the Screen Development Fund 2024

Film production - scene filming

The Greening the Screen Fund will create a commitment to positive change by raising environmental awareness and increasing knowledge and understanding of sustainable screen working.

Climate-conscious freelancers and businesses in Wales are invited to apply for up to £50,000 to Research and Develop (R&D) ideas for sustainable solutions to the challenges of net zero and the decarbonisation of the screen sector in Wales.

For projects relating to:

  • Shifting to renewable energy in studios, offices and postproduction houses, phasing out diesel for generators, and maximising energy efficiency on set and location.
  • Rethinking transport by mapping the challenge, eliminating diesel in vehicles, minimising travel, and shifting modes of transport to those using renewable energy.
  • A circular approach to tackling material and food waste through better monitoring to reduce waste, prioritising local suppliers and low carbon options, and the reuse of materials and production assets.
  • Information gathering and collaboration, including assessing the sustainability of assets used in production, support to green suppliers, and creating carbon budgets for production.
  • Insetting and offsetting business models.

Successful applicants will have up to 12 months to complete their R&D, supported by our consortium partner Ffilm Cymru.  

Applications close: midday on Friday 28 June 2024.
