Most people don’t realize the careful curation that takes place behind the scenes at ACFF. Through winter and spring, our ACFF selection committee watched hundreds of new films from around the world. They intensely debated which titles would be chosen to light up the screen in October. Click through the films to watch trailers, learn about the filmmakers, and let us know what you’re most excited to see.
Creating conservation films often requires education, travel and expensive gear. It’s time consuming and usually doesn’t bring fame or fortune. Our award winning filmmakers are given modest cash prizes to reward exceptional filmmaking and to encourage talented people to remain in a field with a higher purpose.
We believe film to be the most influential medium to spark curiosity and inspire change. Never has the need for action been more urgent. In a time when government is limiting scientific research and public access to research, independent filmmakers go directly to biologists, climatologists, conservationists – environmental scientists of all types, to tell their stories from the field.
