Impact Film Forum


Green Film Fest will deepen the environmental conversation this year with the exciting new Impact Film Forum – a thoughtfully curated panel series with filmmakers, environmental thought-leaders, and change-makers. The Forum will be held at Manny's, a people-powered civic engagement space in the heart of the Mission, September 27 - 29.

Manny’s is a community-focused meeting and learning place in the heart of SF that combines a restaurant, political bookshop, and civic engagement space. Session topics at the Impact Film Forum will include Accountable Filmmaking, Climate Justice, and Youth Voices - a panel curated and hosted by environmental youth leaders.

There will also be a forum session on Ecology of Place, which will feature discussions around this year’s Home theme. Topics include the global housing crisis, gentrification, displacement, immigration, and housing as a human right.

Dig into the topics with us and change-makers including filmmakers Judith Helfand (Cooked: Survival by Zip Code), Michelle Lanier (Mossville: When Great Trees Fall), and leaders from the Sunrise movement. 

Full program will be announced and tickets available from August 29.
