San Francisco Green Film Festival

Green Film Fest is right around the corner and we can’t wait to share with you this year’s line-up of compelling films and discussions. We'll be bringing you urgent new stories from the environmental front-lines - from the wildfires of California to vanishing islands in the Pacific, from the melting Arctic tundra to a receding Amazon. Yet these are also stories of inspiration and hope, of people who are rising up to protect their land, their forests, water, air, and fight for their environmental justice.

We can't wait to share our full line-up with you in just a couple of weeks. We’ll have our official Program Launch at a special party for Members on August 1. You’ll be able to check out the full line-up of films & guests and buy tickets online on August 2.

And then join us for Opening Night at the Castro Theatre on September 6 where it all kicks-off. Our team can’t wait to see you there!
