Out of an abundance of caution, the International Ocean Film Festival has made the extremely difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Film Festival scheduled for March 12-15 in San Francisco due to the current status of the COVID-19 virus.
Join SF Green Film at the International Ocean Film Festival for this award-winning film by David Craig about the complicated relationship between communities and corporations, and the difficult choice between toxic pollutants and job security.

Near a First Nations community in Nova Scotia, a paper mill in January had to stop discharging waste into noxious ponds that for decades polluted both air and water. The company proposed piping its effluent into the ocean, a plan strongly opposed by both the native community and fisherfolk. If the mill closes, others will also, putting over 10,000 jobs at risk. Resolving such conflicts is becoming a challenging worldwide problem. — SJPH
