San Francisco Green Film Festival

Earth Month has ended, but Earth Year is in full swing! From the global Youth Climate Strikes to droves of Green New Deal pledges, there has been some truly inspirational environmental momentum lately.

The Goldman Environmental Prize Awards in San Francisco this week showcased six fearless environmental trailblazers from Liberia, Mongolia, Cook Islands, Macedonia, Chile and the USA. Read about their stories and triumphs. SFGFF joined in at the ceremonies, and being surrounded by so many environmental leaders and eco warriors filled us with hope for the future.

May your May be merry and green!

Onwards,

SF Green Film Festival
