Film festival announces 9th season

By Staff | Oct 21, 2011

The American Conservation Film Festival (ACFF) in historic Shepherdstown announces its ninth season with more than 40 films, panel discussions with filmmakers and conservation experts, a Saturday afternoon children’s program and, for the first time, 3-D films.

This year’s four-day festival, taking place Nov. 3 through 6, will showcase new and rarely screened films curated by a panel of judges who actively work in media, arts or conservation. Presenting diverse conservation themes focusing on the intersection between people and the environment, ACFF’s distinctive programming draws thousands of filmgoers from around the country to Shepherdstown.

Films will be screened at multiple venues, including the state-of-the art auditorium at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Conservation Training Center (NCTC), the campus of Shepherd University and the historic Opera House theater in downtown Shepherdstown.

Full festival passes are $40, and individual block tickets are $10 and are available via the website or at the door. All events at NCTC are free of charge.
