2015 Schools and the Festival

We want to inspire more local students to pick up a camera, share their story and become environmental leaders. There are already hundreds of you doing it and we want to get your work on the big screen and share the Festival with all of you.

Young Filmmakers

We have films from young filmmakers showing throughout the Festival. We're excited to announce the inaugural winner of our SFGFF Young Filmmaker Award, is Psuedo Evolution. The film will be screening on May 31, 5.30pm at the Roxie Theater.


Come to the Festival!

We give local students the opportunity to take part in the Festival for free. We have 150 complimentary tickets for local students to learn more about environmental issues, get involved in the discussions and meet with Festival Filmmakers and guests.

If you work with a school or community youth group and would like complimentary Festival tickets, please contact us.



Schools Screening

We're pleased to be working with the SF Waldorf for a special school screening of Racing to Zero. This San Franciscan film, goes behind the scenes of Mayor Ed Lee's pledge to achieve zero waste by 2020. Students will also get to meet the producer of the film Diana Fuller.

Racing to Zero is also screening May 29, 8.30pm at the Roxie Theater. More info & tickets>>
