Best of Fest in Berryville, Virginia
September 13, 2018 6pm-8:30pm
at The Barns of Rose Hill

The American Conservation Film Festival is thrilled to be partnering with Barns of Rose Hill for the third consecutive year to present a BEST OF FEST, ACFF’s traveling program sharing the most popular, compelling films from its annual festival with venues throughout the region. This year, we are pleased to present a special preview screening of WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE starring the late, great Anthony Bourdain and a feature at this year’s annual film festival in Shepherdstown, WV.

For a trailer and more info on the film, click here:

The film aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows how each of us can make small changes to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

The film will be followed by special guest speakers Derek and Amanda Luhowiak from The Whole Ox butcher and restaurant and Anthony Nelson, executive chef at Field & Main restaurant – both located in Marshall, VA. The will discuss the practices they employ in their kitchens to reduce waste and take questions from the audience.
