Removing single-use plastics from Hollywood sets is important to help address plastic pollution, but if storylines continue to be littered with plastics we are missing a critical opportunity for societal awareness and transformative change. Entertainment is a powerful way to engage audiences on the issue, and while we’re seeing more references to the impacts of plastics on human health, animals, and the ocean in film and television, it’s not enough. So how do we ensure our stories set the scene for a plastic-free future without turning our favorite films and shows into a PSA on plastics?

Join us on September 14 for a conversation led by Kate Folb, Director of Hollywood, Health & Society, as we discuss tips and tools to help scriptwriters seamlessly craft plastic-free and plastic-aware worlds. Fishtown Films’ Emily Gallagher & Austin Elston, the creative team behind the first ever zero-waste feature film “Citywide, and Scott Z. Burns, the screenwriter behind The Informant, Contagion, and AppleTV+’s upcoming Extrapolations, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of going plastic free from the start—in the script. We’ll also hear how audiences can learn to recognize and appreciate when their favorite media creators are doing the work—and if they’re not, how they can encourage them to Flip the Script on Plastics.
