Each year we honor a number of our films and filmmakers with a SFGFF Award. Winners will be announced throughout the Festival. Be sure to vote at the film screenings and help us decide who will win the Audience Award.
Our awards are 3-D printed by Type A Machines in the theater during the Festival from Polylactic Acid (PLA), a bioplastic that is nontoxic, recyclable, and compostable. The awards use a zero waste process and are 100% locally produced.
Friends of the Urban Forest donate a tree-planting as part of the Audience Award. The tree is planted in San Francisco as a gift from the audience of the Green Film Festival in honor of the winning film.
