Everyone here at ACFF has been brimming with excitement to share our 2021 line-up with you. Our selection teams have chosen 47 amazing films — many with diverse creators and subjects — and nearly half are from women filmmakers (our highest percentage yet)! At least a dozen of these films, including our Green Fire Award winner, center on the experiences, cultures, and stories of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
We know these films will captivate and inspire you just as they did us.These “Voices for a New World” share stories of human resilience, the magical wonder of our natural world, and how change is often started by just one person whose passion moved them to take action.
But, don’t take our word for it! Check out our film guide where you can see what the 5 award winners are and watch trailers for each film.
