2015 Festival Program Announcement

Explore the exciting line-up of environmental films and discussions at the 5th Annual SF Green Film Festival, May 28 - June 3. 

Presenting 60 new films from 26 countries, we're bringing films, filmmakers, environmental experts and you together to set the scene for environmental change in the next five years. 

From our Opening Night Film Bikes vs Cars launching our Changing Cities theme to our Closing Night films Racing Extinction and Landfill Harmonic preparing us for the Road to Paris, this year you'll find films, art, workshops and discussions answering the big environmental questions.

We have events that will make you think deeply about the issues - such as Unearthed or An Omnivorous Family's Dilemma and those that encourage you to laugh-out-loud - Just Eat It or the Undeniably Funny Workshop

There's something for everyone's environmental passion at the 2015 SFGFF.
