Filmmaking in the Age of Climate Change


Panel discussion hosted by Unified Filmmakers

Climate change is when disaster movies become reality. Fridays for Future has brought momentum onto the streets and into our heads. Even media coverage caught on to the threat of climate change a while ago. On movie screens, however, fictional content about the most serious issue of our time remains unseen. What has to happen in the film world for climate change to finally be noticed there as well?

The panel:
Janine O’Keeffe (co-founder, Fridays for Future)
Hannes Jaenicke (actor, filmmaker)
Katharina Bergfeld (producer at Flare Film)
Johanna Jaurich (director, producer, and writer)
Christian Sommer (German representative of the Motion Picture Association)
Moderated by: Aline von Drateln
