We prefer electronic submissions through FilmFreeway, an economical, eco-friendly alternative to hard-copy DVD submissions.
We are seeking compelling and relevant new films on the environment & sustainability. As well as the opportunity to screen your film in the San Francisco Bay Area, being a part of the Festival will connect you with local partners to support the ongoing success of your film.
Now heading into its sixth year, the Festival is a hub for the eco-savvy and green-curious to meet filmmakers, environmental experts and campaigners to watch, discuss, and create ideas for a better world.
The 2015 festival presented 60 new films from both advanced and emerging filmmakers. 42% of films at the festival had a female director, over 40% of the films were by International filmmakers, and 1/3 of the films were by SF Bay Area filmmakers. Over 96 filmmakers & guest speakers included writer Dan Koeppel, Greenpeace’s Annie Leonard, Pixar’s Ralph Eggleston, City Hall’s Bevan Dufty, OPS’ Louie Psihoyos and many local scientists, academics and activists.
