“[SFGFF] focuses our attention with wit and enthusiasm, eschewing superficial provocation for a deeper, longer lasting impact...Festival director Rachel Caplan maintains an unwavering emphasis on positive change.” ~ Michael Fox, KQED

“Since its inception seven years ago, the San Francisco Green Film Fest has taken on tough environmental issues such as global warming and pollution, but even as the weeklong event has highlighted dire problems, the goal has always been to offer inspiration and hope.” ~ David Lewis, SF Chronicle

“We greatly appreciated all of the hard work of everyone in this incredibly well organized Green Film Festival in San Francisco.  As filmmakers, this festival exceeded our expectations. The programming was a delight and the workshop sessions were so great to be a part of. We hope to be back again.” ~ Roger Williams, & Lisa Mazzotta, RiverBlue

 A special thank you to our Festival Sponsors!






At every screening, we want to build connections between the moving personal stories & ideas in our films and the local environmental context and action here in the Bay Area. 

Our community partners are leading environmental, arts and community organizations across the Bay Area. They bring the expertise and opportunities for our audiences to make lasting environmental change.

We collaborate with our community partners at the Festival and throughout the year, to bring more environmental films & discussions to wider audiences and promote the ongoing work we are all involved in.

Don't hesitate to contact us to find out more.

Lights! Camera! Take Action!

The credits roll, the lights go up and then our Festival audiences are ready to learn more and play their part. Working with filmmakers, environmental experts, and community partners we make the most of that moment to find people's passion, get them to hook on and be involved. 

We've had audiences leave the theater armed with bags of local seeds from Friends of the Urban Forest at the screening of Project Wild Thing; prepped to grill restaurants about sustainable seafood by Shark Stewards following the screening of The Last Ocean; and full of inspiration after talking to Derrick Evans (film's subject), Leah Mahan (film's director) and Reverend Doctor Ambrose Carroll (Green For All) at the screening of Come Hell or High Water.

Take Action

Thank you to our 2017 Community Partners!
