If you’re a regular at the San Francisco Green Film Festival, you’re probably familiar with the Video Story Booth. I’ve womaned the booth for the past four Festivals, inviting attendees to share their reactions to the films they've seen as they come out of the Green Film Fest theater.
As times have changed, so has the booth. This year we’re updating our name from Video Story Booth to Green Speak Out, reflecting something that has always been part of this endeavor - getting people to share their views.
The 2016 Green Film Fest is shaping up to be the most exciting yet, with the farthest reach across different audiences and contributors. While our Green Community spans many diverse groups, our filmmaker spotlight today falls on our youth filmmakers represented at the 2016 Festival.
El Festival de Cine Verde en San Francisco 2016 tendrá una presentación especial y enfoque en México con una serie de documentales ambientales que cuentan las historias de la gente y sus propios caminos para proteger su tierra, el agua y los océanos.
Making a movie is hard. Finding a story, assembling the right crew, location scouting, scheduling, long production days, painstaking post-production days, and finally sending your film out into the world -- it calls for a particular type of courage.
This year's Green Film Fest program stands in contrast to the film industry as a whole, of which women represent a very small margin of above-the-line roles.
Not only is the Festival headed up by a majority female staff and Board, the program of films we are showing this year features 21 works by female filmmakers.
We are excited to share this special event with you - meet The Yes Men (Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum) & see their latest film The Yes Men Are Revolting.
We are really lucky to have an army of fantastic volunteers behind us who help make the Festival a success year on year.
In our series of blog posts taking a look behind the scenes here at Festival HQ, Andrew Northrup - our Community Outreach Coordinator - tells us why he wanted to join the team:
Each year we pick an environmental theme for Green Film Fest to shine a light on a particularly timely and important issue.
We have a fantastic and diverse line-up of films for you at this year’s Green Film Fest and we’re excited to announce the theme which ties everything together: Keep It Wild.
These are our 2016 green resolutions. Check in at the end of this month to find out how we're getting on!
And we can’t wait to be there for Opening Night of the 6th San Francisco Green Film Festival on April 14.
