The Green Film School Alliance (GFSA) is a collaboration of leading film schools which have united to integrate industry-level sustainable production practices into their programs, committing together to bring common language, standards, and tools to their institutions. This alliance is built around specific actions aimed to reduce the impacts of physical production on the environment, a willingness to share best practices and a pledge to further sustainable initiatives at their schools.
Modeled after the industry standard Green Production Guide best practices and American Film Institute’s (AFI) internal Green Initiative and Green Seal programs, GFSA developed the “PEACHy,” a comprehensive list of relevant sustainable production actions broken out by department and category. Additionally, like its parent document, the PEACHy is aligned with Environmental Media Association’s Green Seal program, to which a specific category for students to earn this third-party recognition has been added.
GFSA will launch PEACHy simultaneously with EMA’s Student Green Seal on August 16, 2021, providing these resources and more, open-sourced, at GreenProductionGuide.com. SPA members will continue to support the school and student efforts.
GFSA includes representatives from twelve film schools, including NYU.
