Take a Deep Breath: Films about Air Pollution Solutions

From smog, soot, and mega-fires, to self-driving cars and Green New Deals - emissions have been on our minds at Fest HQ.

An article from the United Nations Environment Programme (Global Partner of SF Green Film Fest), Gasping for Air in Kabul, got us thinking even more about the extreme consequences of air pollution around the world. 

Breathe in. Breathe out. There is still time for solutions. 

Breathe California's Clear the Air Film Festival has been a long-time partner of SFGFF. Each year, we show the youth winning films at the Festival. Join us this September to see this year's winning films from the next generation of environmental filmmakers! 

Let's take a look at films from the Festival archives that teach us about what steps we can take to combat air pollution.
