'Once Was Water' Sneak Preview & Summer Benefit for SF Green Film Festival

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the Once Was Water screening on 5/29! After a rockin' performance by a Las Vegas Elvis Tribute Artist, this compelling new film captivated a packed house at the Roxie Theater.

Through the generous support from attendees, we will be able to provide over 130 places for students years 6-12 at the festival in September - helping us towards the goal we hold ourselves to: free festival admission for all students. Last year we were able to give spots to 900 students. In order to reach and even surpass this amazing number at the 2019 festival, donations and ticket purchases for events like this screening are key. Every donation or ticket purchase allows a Bay Area student to take a part in this year's festivities!

Once Was Water

Las Vegas, Nevada: the thirstiest city in the driest state, is now trying to leverage that reputation by turning itself into a hub for new and innovative water technology. Some are saying that it may even become the Silicon Valley of Water Conservation. Everything is watched, measured and checked. Water is recycled and returned to the source. Every drop is monitored acoustically to detect possible leaks within 6,500 miles of pipes. This inspiring film focuses on innovative solutions that could serve as models in other parts of the world. (Christopher Beaver, USA, 2019, 53 min.)

Screening includes live music performance with Las Vegas special guest!
