The 2013 San Francisco Green Film Festival includes 50 films from around the globe, with over 70 visiting filmmakers and guest speakers covering environmental topics surrounding clean energy, green chemistry, food, housing, trash, water, and art in the environment.

The Festival will open on Thursday, May 30 with Rebels With A Cause from acclaimed Bay Area filmmakers Nancy Kelly and Kenji Yamamoto.
