Film Festivals

Green Film Festival has announced Green Film Fest 2018 will open in September to align with the Global Climate Action Summit.

“We are excited to open the 8th annual festival in September when green leaders from around the world will come to San Francisco to support the Paris Climate Agreement,” said SFGFF’s Founder & CEO, Rachel Caplan. “With the planet heating up, environmental protections at risk, and political forces in flux, Green Film Fest 2018 will serve our audiences, filmmakers, campaigns and causes with inspiring and entertaining stories that seek solutions and stimulate action.”

Green Film Fest 2018 will launch on September 6 with a spectacular Opening Night at the Castro Theatre. Other festival venues will include Roxie, 518 Valencia, Bayview Opera House, and San Francisco Public Library.

The 16th Annual International Ocean Film Festival will take place March 7-10, 2019 at venues around San Francisco. According to Executive Director Ana Blanco, “Our mission is to inspire people to appreciate and care for the ocean by revealing its wonders through the independent lens. The Festival is now recognized as the premier venue in North America for ocean-related films. “Our work is made possible by the spirit, passion, and hard work of numerous volunteers and artists dedicated to using film as a medium to increase public awareness of the environmental, social, and cultural importance of marine ecosystems and foster a spirit of ocean stewardship.”
