One of our green team’s primary goals is to get everyone on campus talking about why sustainability is such an exciting opportunity – both for individual associates and for Walmart as a whole. To do that, we couldn’t think of a better way than working with the SFGFF to show films that truly have an impact, helping audiences feel connected to environmental issues and inspiring them to get engaged. More generally, we think bringing festivals like the SFGFF to corporate campuses is a great opportunity to get inspiring films in front of a broader audience, start conversations, and get ideas flowing on ways to integrate sustainability into everyone’s professional lives.

We loved the camaraderie of the festival staff, we loved the city and we loved the warmth, charm and personal attention showered on the filmmaker. A festival with smart crowds, class and heart. Don’t miss a frame.

The energetic Q&A following BANANAS!* was a unique experience to supplement the film screening; it provided learning and critical thought that I couldn’t get anywhere else. The festival did a great job of covering the green topics I was aware of as well as introducing me to new ideas and issues.
