San Francisco Green Film Festival

San Francisco, California, USA

San Francisco Green Film Festival

More Than Movies. A Movement.

The San Francisco Green Film Festival is the USA West Coast’s leading event for films & discussions about people and the planet.

At Green Film Fest 2018, we shared the world’s most urgent stories, from the California wildfires to vanishing islands in the Pacific, and the melting Arctic tundra. These were powerful stories of inspiration and hope, of people who are rising up to fight for environmental justice.

For nine days – September 6-14 – at venues including the Castro Theatre, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center, audiences saw compelling environmental films; connected with filmmakers and experts; and participated in discussions that spark green ideas & action.

For Green Film Fest 2019, we are seeking compelling and relevant new films on the environment & sustainability. We are particularly interested in stories that are by or about indigenous peoples, women, or present new economic models. The festival is open to new or established filmmakers from anywhere in the world and there are no restrictions on length or genre. All entries are eligible for the Festival’s Awards.

As well as the opportunity to screen your film to our San Francisco audiences, being a part of the Festival will connect you with local partners to support the ongoing success & impact of your film. Here’s what our 2018 filmmakers are saying…
