BFI Sustainable Screen Programme

Julie’s Bicycle has partnered with the British Film Institute (BFI) to deliver a new programme designed for the screen sector.

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

We will update this page with free resources and guidance from the programme regularly.

The BFI Sustainable Screen programme is for BFI National Lottery awardees and the wider screen sector. It runs from Autumn 2023 until March 2026.

The programme will support organisations to put the principle of environmental sustainability into practice – one of three core principles the BFI asks National Lottery awardees to apply to funded activity.

Alison Tickell, Founder and Director of Julie’s Bicycle says:

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.”

Resources for the Wider Screen Sector

Julie’s Bicycle will provide free resources for the screen industries available to all.

These will include:

  • Screen sector Top Tips – signposting to other key resources,
  • A series of webinars on climate literacy, understanding your impacts and developing environmental commitment and action,
  • Sharing stories to inspire and inform sector action.
