FMX – Film & Media Exchange 2023 will be THE BEAUTY, which discusses sustainability as a core topic.
Be excited for our first program news! The program will feature the stop motion films A Flammable Planet and Can’t Negotiate the Melting Point of Ice for WWF (NOMINT), the streaming series The World according to Jeff Goldblum (Alchemy), as well as the latest developments in the field of AI Rotoscoping (Kognat).
Considering the state of the environment, FMX is evolving to become increasingly sustainable.
At FMX 2023, as part of our conference program, it will discuss sustainability in film and media production and present approaches that can make the film industry more climate-friendly. At the same time, FMX is taking active steps to become more sustainable as an event.
For the first time, FMX 2023 will be certified as a climate-friendly event by the KSS Klimaschutzstiftung Baden-Wuerttemberg (KSS Climate Protection Foundation). The KSS has been created to support the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg on its path to climate neutrality.
To reduce the carbon footprint of FMX in 2023 and the long run, the event will focus our efforts on the following topics as deemed most important by the KSS: Venue, Energy & Water Supply, Arrival & Departure, Accommodation, Catering, Waste & Resources, Procurement, Event Marketing & Public Relations and CO2 Compensation.
In 2023, FMX takes the audience to truly unknown depths of the sea with the official trailer THE BEAUTY, which sends viewers on a poetic journey through a fascinating underwater world where plastic waste and nature have become one. For a short moment, worries and guilt dissolve between eerily beautiful coral reefs and the mysterious depths of the ocean.
THE BEAUTY is a project by alumni of the Filmakademie’s Animationsinstitut, among them Pascal Schelbli (Director), Marc Angele (VFX Supervisor), Noel Winzen (Animation), Tina Vest and Aleksandra Todorovic (Producers).
