The SF Green Film Festival will present 70 new, international films with over 100 guest speakers and 70+ community organizations at venues including the Castro Theatre, Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center, and Koret Auditorium at SF Public Library. Join us for a spectacular Opening Night at the Castro Theatre on Thursday, September 6, with our Green Carpet Gala!

This will be the first year the Festival will take place in the Fall, to align with the Governor’s Global Climate Action Summit, Asia Society’s COAL+ICE  Exhibition and Festival, and the Rise for Climate March. The Green Film Festival is excited to be a part of this pivotal moment.

A bold and fearless voice for our planet.
