Event Details

Join us for the eighth edition of Green Film Fest, September 6 – 14 at the historic Castro Theatre, YBCA, and Cowell Theater at Fort Mason Center. We’ll be bringing you urgent new stories from the environmental front-lines – from the wildfires of California to vanishing islands in the Pacific, from the melting Arctic tundra to a receding Amazon. Yet these are also stories of inspiration and hope, of people who are rising up to protect their land, their forests, water, air, and fight for their environmental justice.

We are bringing audiences a week of over 50 new films and more than 100 guest speakers, discussions, and special events that spark green ideas and connections. 

With the planet heating up, environmental protections at risk, and political forces in flux, there has never been a more crucial moment to come together and share stories and ideas for action.
