BFI Sustainable Screen

Julie’s Bicycle has partnered with the British Film Institute (BFI) to deliver a programme of screen sector support between 2023 and 2026.

By supporting environmental understanding and action, the programme aims to lay a solid foundation for better environmental practice and a greener screen sector in the longer term.

“The screen sector’s ability to act on the climate crisis is crucial for the industry to thrive. It must adapt and build resilience.

The sector has a unique role to play. It has the ability to tell stories which shine a light on the issues we face and the solutions at hand. It can inspire positive action across its audiences and communities.”

– Alison Tickell, Founder and Director, Julie’s Bicycle.
