Showing next month at SXSW: Greenlit, directed by Miranda Bailey

Synopsis from the film's website:

The documentary Greenlit explores films that have wreaked havoc on our environment and poses the question: what can we do to soften our carbon footprint as filmmakers?

Miranda Bailey follows the cast and crew of the indie feature film The River Why, starring Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) as they bring aboard a green consultant, Lauren Selman, and watch her struggle to “green” their film. The task proves to be extremely challenging, even in a town as eco-conscious as Portland, where one would think the film crew would be receptive to environmental issues… but instead we see how film crews and film unions maintain that there is no place in the line of filmmaking for someone whose job description is environmental consultant. Both entertaining and humorous, Greenlit is filled with compelling and important facts about filmmaking and sustainability.
