“The San Francisco Green Film Festival is unapologetically about advocacy. The goal isn’t just to educate audiences about many environment issues but also to inspire them to take action.” ~ Walter Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle

“From the very beginning, the San Francisco Green Film Festival has adamantly refused to dispense the guilt, fatalism, fury and victimization that plague so many environmental documentaries. Part celebration, part inspiration and part education, the festival aims to energize audiences through the good works that so many people are doing to preserve the beauty and health of our planet. That’s not to say that the festival traffics in escapism and denies reality, only that it seeks out films that empower audiences — rather than bum them out — while conveying the state of things.” ~ Michael Fox, KQED Arts

“I always find the SF Green Film Festival to be one of the most interesting and inspiring of all film festivals held annually in San Francisco. It makes an extra effort to reach out to diverse audiences and to engage people in important environmental issues.” ~ Tom Mayer, Cinesource

Activism is rooted in community. For the fourth year, the Green Film Festival is engaging with the community through discussion and film. The community support in San Francisco is heartening. From the filled theaters to the community organizations who’ve partnered with this event: Earthjustice, American Rivers, Save the Bay, Restore the Delta and many others.” ~ SF Bay Guardian

“It’s actually a pretty inspiring film, not one of those docs that makes you think “screw it, I’m just going to stay in bed and eat bacon and Oreos.” ~ SFist (review of 2014 Earth Day event)
