The Sustainable Production Forum (SPF) is a two day event in Vancouver, BC that focuses on the pressing issue of sustainability within the motion picture and entertainment industry. The 2019 Sustainable Production Forum is presented by Creative BC and in collaboration with the Motion Picture Industry Association of BC (MPPIA).


The 2019 program will feature a mix of focused workshops, panels and notable keynote speakers to offer dynamic programming for all industry members. The climate action-focused city of Vancouver serves as the backdrop for creative thinking on advancing motion picture into a sustainable future.


2019 Forum Theme—Collective Action: Highlighting and discussing collective action will remind the industry that we need to work together to reduce our impact. Climate change affects all of us directly, now more than ever. And it will take all of us to solve it—the time to step up is now.


This year SPF has partnered with Tree Canada. With every SPF ticket sold, at least one tree will be planted in British Columbia in areas affected by wildfire or other environmental disasters.
