The tenth annual American Conservation Film Festival (ACFF) arrives in Shepherdstown, WV, from November 1-4, 2012. With 65 conservation films and numerous filmmakers and speakers, this has become a premiere film festival in the region. These 65 films have been chosen from 200 entries as best embodying the relationship between humans and nature.

On Saturday, November 3, a day's worth of free films will be shown at the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) continuously from 12 noon until 5 p.m. in the NCTC Byrd Auditorium. Questions and answer sessions will be available with several of the filmmakers following the screenings.

There will be a Producers Workshop for beginning filmmakers from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. on Saturday at NCTC, highlighting the work of featured filmmakers.

Also on Saturday, family programming is available at NCTC’s Instructional West Building, Room 151, from 12 noon until 5 p.m.
