The Future of Humanity: Exploring the Environment at the 9th Annual Green Film Festival
As concerns about our rapidly changing ecosystem become increasingly mainstream, more and more individuals are turning towards various artistic enterprises in order to try and process, discuss, and change what is happening to our planet. Certainly, many books continue to emerge on the topic, but sometimes it can feel completely overwhelming to know where to begin when it comes to keeping up with the latest science on global warming and the various things that people are trying to do in order to stop its most disastrous effects.
If you are looking for ways to become more knowledgeable about the state of the environment, and if you like movies, then you will not want to miss the 9th Annual Green Film Festival. From the 24th of September until the 29th, the city by the bay will become the nexus of film activity on contemporary environmental issues. This festival is highly regarded as the best film festival on the west coast that deals with conservation, pollution, global warming, and a host of other important topics. Not only is the Annual Green Film Festival well-known around the region, it is also a highly regarded event throughout the world, and filmmakers from across the globe will be attending to display their work, engage in panel discussions, talk to the audience, and engage with the community on a wide variety of pressing environmental issues.
Over 50 films will be screened at the 9th Annual Green Film Festival, and more than 100 guest speakers, filmmakers, and experts on the natural world will be in attendance to answer questions, broach difficult topics, and further our discussion on what is happening and what must be done to stop it.
As is the case with many film festivals, the Green Film Festival will not be held at one single place. Instead, it will happen at numerous venues throughout the city, including the Castro Theater, Roxie, 518 Valencia, Swissnex, Manny’s, and the Exploratorium.
The 9th Annual Green Film Festival will coincide with the Global Climate Action Summit also taking place within San Francisco, meaning that the time to begin – or continue – engaging in these conversations is exactly now.
