It’s hard to believe that this is only the first year for one of the country’s most environmentally conscious city’s to have an all green oriented film festival. And by green I don’t mean watching three days worth of Cheech and Chong films preceded by Snoop Dogg music videos, even though Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke did feature the world’s first eco-friendly van made entirely out of marijuana. What this festival does offer are 3 days (March 3 – March 6) of “innovative, international films that explore the environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic aspects of living sustainably on this planet” (Quoted from www.sfgreenfilmfest.org).
Some film’s I’m looking forward to are Werner Herzog‘s Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, Michael Madsen‘s Into Eternity, and Fredrik Gretten‘s Bananas!*. Check out the list of all the films along with a complete schedule and ticket info along with the festival’s trailer after the jump.
