More Than Movies. A Movement.
WHAT YOUR DONATIONS HELPED ACCOMPLISH IN 2018
The San Francisco Green Film Festival is the USA West Coast's leading event for films & discussions that spark green ideas and actions. At Green Film Fest 2018, we shared the world’s most urgent stories, from the California wildfires to vanishing islands in the Pacific, and the melting Arctic tundra. These were powerful stories of inspiration and hope, of people who are rising up to fight for environmental justice.
This year's festival in September featured over 60 new environmental films from around the globe, over 100 filmmakers and guest speakers, expert panels, and incredible audience discussions.
We had films from 20 countries, and visiting guests from 10 countries including China, South Africa, Ecuador, and Switzerland.
Together, we can maintain the momentum of the green movement at this critical moment.
