San Francisco Green Film Festival

Super Tuesday is here: it’s time to get out and Vote for the Planet. With our climate in chaos and the Green New Deal at stake, there’s never been a more urgent moment to make your voice heard.

Need some inspiration? With the roll-back of environmental regulations and international climate programs, we’ve been taking strength from the films and filmmakers in our SF Green Film Festival archive. Here’s a list of essential films we compiled after the 2016 election, to arm you with the knowledge, ideas, and inspiration to resist Trump’s environmental agenda. Together we can watch and learn from the people taking on the climate deniers, standing up to power and offering up new solutions.

We are also drawing inspiration from the flood of film submissions coming in for the 10th Anniversary Festival in September. We’re seeing more entries than ever, from every corner of the globe, strengthening our commitment to bringing you the newest stories from the environmental frontlines. Consider making a gift to support this work in 2020, and bring even more international voices to audiences.

Go vote!

Thank you for all that you do for a greener planet.

THE MILL, Mar 13

Cowell Theater :: 2 Marina Blvd.

Friday, Mar 13 :: 1pm-3pm

Near a First Nations community in Nova Scotia, a paper mill had to stop discharging waste into noxious ponds that for decades polluted both air and water. Their cleanup plan is strongly opposed by both the native community and fisherfolk - but if the mill closes, it will put over 10,000 jobs at risk.

Join us at Int'l Ocean Film Fest to delve into this critical conversation.
