With this festival we aim to celebrate the blue marble we all live on and also confront the challenges we face in maintaining a livable planet. Most of us don’t want to up and move to Mars just yet, so we’re looking for films that inspire us all to help save our planet.
We take all comers, whether they be compelling documentaries, adventure films, animation and narrative fiction films with environmental themes. Films are curated into themed sections, which pair projects with complimentary subject matter or ideas to create a cinematic journey for our audiences and begin to engage them with sustainable solutions.
The Green Film Festival is presented by SF IndieFest, a 501c3 non-profit, that has presented over 60 film festivals over the past 24 years, acquiring a strong following with independent film fans and garnering press coverage and recognition for thousands of films and filmmakers. SF IndieFest is a founding member of the Film Festival Alliance.
