In its second year, the VIFF Industry Builder Award Presented by BC Creates, recognizes a key contributor to British Columbia’s creative industries. With a growing focus on sustainability in production and content creation across the industry, this year’s award is proudly presented to Chris Carter for his exemplary sustainable production of the Vancouver-shot The X-Files. Carter will accept the award on October 7 at a Greater Vancouver Board of Trade luncheon.

On the same day, Carter will open the Sustainable Production Forum, presented by Creative BC, at the Vancouver International Film Centre (1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver), a first-of-its-kind one-day event that will lay the groundwork for showcasing Vancouver as a world-class destination for sustainable screen-based industry production.

In his keynote, Carter will address the importance of sustainable production and possibilities for the future. Make sure you do not miss the exciting morning sessions at the Forum which will include insights from sustainability executives from Hollywood studios such as Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, and NBC Universal. Facilitated discussions with leaders from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and the World Bank’s Connect4Climate group will also take place. Creative BC will kick-off the afternoon with an update of their Reel Green initiative and facilitate a discussion on practical approaches to sustainable production. The Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) will bring its successful “myth busting” format to an afternoon session, inviting green economy leaders to debunk misconceptions and inspire attendees by sharing innovative solutions to common sustainability challenges in screen-based sectors.

The Sustainable Production Forum is a free event and registration is required. More information and registration will be available at viff.org.
