As we close another Green Film Fest, we reflect on all the connections we have made in the past week of screenings and events.
While the festival itself has grown and evolved over the six years since it first started, one of the biggest rewards has been seeing the growth and change from some of our returning filmmakers over the years.

Every year at Green Film Fest we showcase green artists from across the Bay Area, including musicians, sculptors, designers, photographers and filmmakers who are inspired by the environment.
We've teamed up with Open Show San Francisco to showcase the Bay Area's best visual storytellers on Friday April 15, 6.30pm at 518 Valencia.
The show PROJECT EARTH will feature photographers and filmmakers exploring our environment from five unique perspectives -- social documentary, science, wildlife, landscape and conceptual art.
Here's a glimpse at the featured artists...

Join San Francisco Green Film Festival and Robyn Bykofsky, local youth media expert and award-winning filmmaker, in a fun interactive afternoon of making your wildest ideas come to life.
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.
