A Greener Festival For a Better Future

Following our slogan We recycle everything but films, for the third year in a row, the Zagreb Film Festival continues its environmental mission with a series of activities! Since last year, the festival catalog has been exclusively available in digital form, and this year, we’re also saying goodbye to printed program booklets. The program and screening schedule will now be accessible solely on the official festival website and the ZFF mobile app. We’ve also launched posters, invitations, and the majority of accreditations into the digital realm. In comparison to previous editions, we’ve reduced the printing of other materials by over 50 percent. Guest gifts have been provided in collaboration with local and environmentally-friendly brands. We continue to work on developing green practices in partnership with our friends and partners: Green Action and FED. To further improve these practices in future editions, we’re once again joining the Green Charter For Film Festivals initiative. Through their platform, we’ll be monitoring the CO2 footprint during this year’s festival and comparing the results with last year’s edition. In collaboration with MG automobili, the festival will utilize electric and hybrid vehicles as official vehicles, achieving a reduction in negative CO2 emissions during preparations and throughout this year’s edition. To ensure visitors have a fast and environmentally-friendly arrival at the festival, ZFF, in partnership with Nextbike, will provide a public bicycle system at all festival locations.
