In partnership with The Shepherdstown Rotary Club and Shepherd University’s School of Business & Social Sciences, the American Conservation Film Festival presents ‘The Bat Man of Mexico’ in celebration of The World Affairs Seminar and its theme of POLLINATION.

Bat Man

Rodrigo, ‘The Bat Man of Mexico,’ has been saving the amazing bats of his homeland since childhood, when he kept vampire bats in his bathroom.

Now his favorite drink, Tequila, is at stake. The bat that pollinates the plant that this famous liquor comes from is in trouble. Rodrigo braves hurricanes, snakes, Mayan tombs, and seas of cockroaches to find and save the bats. Narrated by David Attenborough, this is a heart-warming and breathtaking conservation success story. 64 minutes.

An audience favorite of the 2015 Festival!

ACFF presents at DCEFF

ACFF Partners with DCEFF – the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital – for the screening of UNBRANDED

MARCH 17, 7pm at E STREET CINEMA, 555 11th Street NW, Washington, DC


We are thrilled to partner with our fellow film festival in the city, the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (DCEFF), to share some of our favorite films with our respective audiences.  DCEFF will screen UNBRANDED at the Landmark E Street Cinema on March 17, 2016, at 7pm.  As at ACFF in 2015, the film’s producer, Dennis Aig from Montana State University, will be on hand for a brief discussion after the film.
Last fall marked the beginning of this partnership between ACFF and DCEFF when the latter presented Tiger Tiger, the William Warner Beautiful Swimmers Award Winner from the 2015 DCEFF, at our Festival in October.  The purpose of this partnership is to share more outstanding environmental films with wider audiences and help promote collaborations between festivals and filmmakers.

UNBRANDED follows four young men on a 3,000 mile journey with 16 wild mustangs to demonstrate the value of these horses and the public lands they occupy.  The film has won multiple festival awards and thrilled audiences around the world.
