On Earth Day 2021 SF IndieFest is thrilled to announce the launch of a new film festival, Livable Planet, for San Francisco audiences that will bring independent feature and short length films from around the world that focus on green and environmental issues in both a fun and informative manner. The complete Festival program will be announced on April 1, 2021.
The Livable Planet Film Festival is interested in exploring all aspects of "environmental film" whether they be compelling documentaries, adventure films or narrative fiction films with environmental themes. Films will be curated into themed sections (such as Environment, Adventure, Wildlife and Activism) which pair projects with complimentary subject matter or ideas to create a cinematic journey for our audiences and begin to engage them with sustainable solutions.
SF/Arts Curator Insight
Filling the void left by the demise of the Green Film Fest, SF Indiefest answers the call with new virtual addition focusing on the environment. “Landfall” looks at the fallout from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico after the press parade moved on; and, the Norwegian export, “Into the Dark,” hitches a ride on a perilous expedition to the Artic, braving forty-foot seas and subzero temperatures. On a less epic scale, “Snowy” probes the psyche and potential happiness of a pet turtle.
