American Conservation Film Festival

The motivating force behind the American Conservation Film Festival (ACFF) is the power of imagery to inform and inspire. As environmental issues become increasingly global, understanding our individual roles in the biosphere and the global human community is more important than ever. Yet many of us don't appreciate how our actions, lifestyles, and cultures affect the world we live in.

LIONS FOR LAMBS Opens Worldwide Next Week

Abu Dhabi Hosts Inaugural Middle East International Film Festival

 Tuesday, October 8--------Launching a major international film festival in less than six months time is, among other things, a major crap shoot (can one get the films, the celebrtities and the industry movers and shakers on board?). When the announcements began coming out on the inaugural Middle East International Film Festival, there were skeptics in the roving band of film festival circuit wanderers who openly questioned whether an event of magnitude could be pulled off in such a short peri...

Film Critics Associations All Over The Map With Awards

Monday, December 11----With the glut of announcements from various film critics associations, the Oscar race is beginning to take shape.

In the past 72 hours, film critic...

Explosion of Documentary-Only Film Festivals

Thursday, November 30----While it is true that most major international film festivals do showcase important documentary films, the explosion of documentary-only film festivals, as evidenced here at the International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) in Amsterdam, is nothing less than an explosion. With brochures littering the industry areas, it is amazing and heartening to see such a massive public interest in the documentary form. So, instead of writing a long article, I am simply going to l...

What Does God Look Like?
