"The San Francisco Green Film Festival is unapologetically about advocacy. The goal isn’t just to educate audiences about many environment issues but also to inspire them to take action." ~ Walter Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle

"Leo DiCaprio’s Oscars speech was a clarion call to millions as our earth steadily warms; SF’s own Green Film Festival takes the lead in presenting films and conversations addressing the most pressing environmental issue we face." ~ Laura Fraenza, SF/Arts

"A rare amalgam of elevation, activism, education and inspiration, the Green Film Festival is the kind of event where you can pick a film, any film, from the program and walk away thrilled. This year’s theme is a beaut: Keep It Wild." ~ Michael Fox, KQED Arts

"I always find the SF Green Film Festival to be one of the most interesting and inspiring of all film festivals held annually in San Francisco. It makes an extra effort to reach out to diverse audiences and to engage people in important environmental issues." ~ Tom Mayer, Cinesource

"Activism is rooted in community. For the fourth year, the Green Film Festival is engaging with the community through discussion and film. The community support in San Francisco is heartening. From the filled theaters to the community organizations who’ve partnered with this event: Earthjustice, American Rivers, Save the Bay, Restore the Delta and many others." ~ SF Bay Guardian

"It’s actually a pretty inspiring film, not one of those docs that makes you think "screw it, I’m just going to stay in bed and eat bacon and Oreos."" ~ SFist
