The San Francisco Green Film Festival aims to provide as varied a program as possible, giving voice to a kaleidoscope of perspectives, styles, and stories.
Not only does Green Film Fest present an amazing assortment of green films, but we also recognize the importance and power of green still images.
This year, we are holding a pop-up art gallery at FestHQ (518 Valencia) featuring original photos and works for purchase from the Oakland-based Survival Media Agency.
Agency artists are renowned for their climate and protest coverage.
Who isn't curious about what happens behind the scenes while making a film?
Here's a sneak peak into the motivations and methods of Jennifer Galvin, the director of The Memory of Fish, which will be shown on Saturday, April 22, at 3 pm, in the Little Roxie.
Named as one of Good Magazine's 'The Good 100' in 2014, Dr. Galvin is spectacularly well-rounded.
Not only is she a film director, but also a public health and epidemiology doctor, an aquatic biologist, and a philanthropist.
Dr. Galvin was gracious enough to take time away from her busy schedule to answer a few burning questions for us.

Women make up only about a third of today's documentary directors, and are thus still underrepresented in the field.
This year, Green Film Fest 2017 has adopted a new way to celebrate films made by women - as well as films that have significant onscreen female characters.
And that is by stamping them 'F Rated'.
Films with a female director, writer, or on-screen presence will be rated 'F', films with two of these components will be 'Double F', and those with all three are 'Triple F'.
The 'F Rated' movement, was started a few years ago in the UK as a way to champion women in film, and we are delighted to join in the conversation, encouraging you to think about who is telling the stories you see on screen.
We are proud of the tenacity and creativity of our own female filmmakers, and are impressed by the myriad ways they have come to their craft.
Here is a closer look at four of the women who helm 2017 festival feature films.
There are so many stories hidden on our dinner plate - where the food came from, who made it, why we decided to eat it.
And one thing we're particularly interested in is how we make nutritious food, delicious food. Food that's good for our health and the environment and available to everyone.
We're back at the Commonwealth Club for our now annual pre-festival session with SF Bay Area filmmakers.
