The Opportunity

Our sponsors join our eco-savvy community of people and partners that have a strong appetite to discover new environmental films, ideas & lifestyles. You will join our prestigious network of current supporters!

We connect a passionate environmental audience with top documentary filmmakers, guests, sponsors and partners.

From Premieres and Parties to in-depth Panel Discussions and Audience Awards, there are multiple opportunities to participate in the Festival and reach our engaged audience. In 2015 we were at venues across the city, including Roxie Theater, SF Public Library, 518 Valencia and at the David Brower Center (Berkeley).

Our team will craft a package that will:

  • support your business objectives.

  • integrate your brand, image, products and services within our high-quality programming.

  • personalize your experience at the Festival.

In addition to financial contributions, the festival is seeking in-kind sponsors to support festival production, promotion, food and beverage, travel.

What People Are Saying

"One of our green team’s primary goals is to get everyone on campus talking about why sustainability is such an exciting opportunity – both for individual associates and for Walmart as a whole. To do that, we couldn’t think of a better way than working with the SFGFF to show films that truly have an impact, helping audiences feel connected to environmental issues and inspiring them to get engaged."~ Anna Smalley, Walmart eCommerce Green Team, Screening Host Partner

“Part celebration, part inspiration and part education, the festival aims to energize audiences through the good works that so many people are doing to preserve the beauty and health of our planet. That’s not to say that the festival traffics in escapism and denies reality, only that it seeks out films that empower audiences — rather than bum them out — while conveying the state of things.” ~ KQED Arts

“I had a very positive experience. You all were able to get a good crowd and SF is the kind of town that responds to a film like this in a more sophisticated way than most, which was rewarding to see.” ~ Sandy McLeod, filmmaker, Seeds of Time
