A project between Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway to create a GREEN ICE CAMERA guidelines for sustainable media production in the Barents region and beyond.

These guidelines include aspects like Communication, Local Resilience, Arctic Ecosystems, Cultural Sensitivity, Social Values and Emission Reduction.

In addition to the guidelines we are developing production tools to help filmmakers coming to the Arctic, make more sustainable productions, by offering them action steps and questions for self-assessment.

Projects that follow the guidelines can obtain a Green Ice Camera Badge and receive an award at a GREEN SCREEN festival in Kirkenes in September 2021.

The regulations will be published on an online platform (ENG/RUS language), where companies can register and apply for certification. We believe that collaboration across borders is crucial for sustainable development of the region. The database of the registered companies will promote creative collaboration and make it easier to hire local staff.

The project is supported by Kolarctic CBC Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway, Barents Secretariat and SkatteFUNN Scheme.

This project has been produced with the assistance of the European Union. The contents of this project are the sole responsibility of Ice-9 and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union.

At the Green Screen Film Festival in Kirkenes / Nikel, September 2021, the first winners of Green Ice Camera will be announced.
