The AIFF added that it was making efforts to promote environmental messages and efforts to offset the carbon footprint, as a result of any big event.

The Festival’s Director Nada Doumani, said: "The Festival’s Management believes the film industry is a strong platform that can contribute to a positive change, especially for issues that are of concern to all and to our planet." 

Below are the festival’s steps in that direction:

• Reduce the carbon footprint by repurposing some of our last year’s branding
• Remove diesel generators as a main source of power at the drive-in cinemas
• ncentivise electric vehicles
• Reduce waste and printed material
• Use environmentally friendly packaging
• Recycle waste
• Use recyclable material
• Offset the carbon footprint that might result from necessary actions, such as traveling and transportation, by donating to the Arab Group for the Protection of Nature in order to plant 674 trees in Jordan.

In the framework of the “Amman Film Industry Days,” a panel addressing the topic “Greening the Screen” has been organized with the participation of specialists in the field of social and environmental impact. The panel recently took place at The Filmmakers Hub located in Abdali Boulevard.
