San Francisco's First Green Film Festival Opens Mar. 3
Film-loving travelers (and Bay Area greenies) take note: San Francisco’s first Green Film Festival opens Mar. 3 at the stately — and LEED-certified — Bently Reserve. The event will include panels, workshops, and screenings of environment-oriented films. In light of opening night’s theme, plastic pollution, there will be a premiere of Bag It, a film spotlighting America’s plastic addiction. Afterward, mingle at a gala featuring sustainable food, wine tastings, and live music.
The three-day festival will introduce more than 70 green films from around the world, including Werner Herzog’s new documentary Happy People and Matt Briggs’s award-winning animated short, The Krill is Gone. Check the San Francisco Green Festival's website for a full listing of films and schedules.
