What: 

The San Francisco Green Film Festival returns for its 5th year on Thursday, May 28th and will run until Wednesday, June 3rd at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco. The festival will hold its Opening Night festivities at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF) and will also hold events at 518 Valencia and the Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch, 100 Larkin Street.

For its fifth edition, the West Coast’s leading destination for films and discussions about people and the planet will present over 60 new films from around the world, with over 70 filmmakers and special guests in attendance to delve into some of the most pressing environmental issues and innovative solutions. Audiences will be inspired to move beyond their theater seats, with tangible ideas and connections to take positive environmental action in the Bay Area and beyond.

The festival’s theme this year will be Changing Cities, reflecting on the growing pace of change here in our own city San Francisco, the Festival will bring inspiration from films that explore ideas for building healthy, livable, and just urban communities. Films and discussions will focus on creating positive change in our city. Whether it is transit, housing, parks, or quality of life, together we can find innovative ways to get involved and create a better, more livable city for everyone.
