It's been a momentous year for the Green Film Festival. At all our programs this year, we saw that there's never been more need for communities to have a place to come together to share urgent stories from the environmental front-lines. We still have a long way to go when facing the reality of the climate crisis, but the key to sparking change lies in sharing the truth with as many people as possible. At the Festival, we use independent film as a powerful medium to educate, inspire, and activate.
Take the opportunity this holiday season to share the green movement message with your loved ones. We thank you for your continued support!

Broadcast Media Coverage of Climate Change: Obstacles & Solutions
Mainstream television coverage of climate change in recent years has not been devoted to telling the most critical stories. Complex issues are glossed over, reports are buried, and climate-talk is dominated by the Trump Administration. We must continue to fight to ensure that the truth is reaching the public by bringing fearless independent filmmakers from around the globe to share their crucial stories.

SF Green Film Fest co-presents: THE LAST ITALIAN COWBOYS
We're pleased to co-present this new film at the New Italian Cinema Film Festival, which touches on a unique perspective on how an organic, free-range ranch carries out Italy’s slow food traditions.
This beautifully shot documentary is a love song to the Maremma region and the cowboys who work on one of the last ranches that breeds cattle and horses in the wild.
Shot over the changing seasons in an area that stretches between southern Tuscany and northern Lazio, the film explores the identity of these weather-beaten wranglers, their synchronicity with the rhythms of the land, and their relationship with the animals they steward.
(Walter Bencini, Italy, 2018, 95 min)
