Connect4Climate is working with the Guadalajara Film Festival (FICG) to address climate concerns in the film industry. At FICG29 the film festival director Ivan Trujillo announced that they will work to determine the festival's carbon footprint and take actions to address its climate impact. The festival's actions are inline with encouraging activities already underway in Mexico to reduce the country's climate impact.
In a pledge presented at the festival it reads: "The Guadalajara Film Festival endorses the concerns about the social impact for climate change in the world. That is why it is pleased to announce that from the next edition (FICG30) it will be part of the Connect4Climate campaign."
This is part of Connect4Climate's continued engagement with the entertainment industry to identify means of mitigating the climate impact of the sector and partnering with leading initiative to help spread climate change awareness in the industry. Earlier in the year Connect4Climate teamed upwith Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Sustainability Department and Fluminense Federal University for the Crackle Cinema Green Project to inspire young filmmakers.
