‘Best of Fest’ promotes solutions to pressing conservation issues

September 17, 2013

McDaniel College hosts the American Conservation Film Festival’s “Best Of Fest,” featuring two acclaimed documentaries and a discussion with Jeff Groff ’01, Shepherd University assistant professor of Physics and ACFF board member.

This free and open-to-the-public event is 7 p.m. Sept. 20 on campus in room 108, Hill Hall.

The McDaniel College Honors Program is sponsoring the screening of two films from the American Conservation Film Festival (ACFF), an annual event held in West Virginia that highlights productions from conservation filmmakers around the world to provide a platform for education and dialogue about more sustainable ways to live.

“Cape Spin! An American Power Struggle” (86 minutes) is last year’s runner up for both the ACFF Green Fire Award and Audience Choice Award. It is a tragicomic tale of how America’s first proposed offshore wind farm triggered a schism in idyllic Nantucket Sound, pitting neighbor against neighbor and environmentalist against environmentalist.

Winner of last year’s ACFF Best Student Film Award, “The Last Iceman of Chimborazo” (12 minutes) is a documentary about the last man on Earth who knows how to find a sacred healing ingredient hidden deep within an Ecuadorian volcano.

Groff, recipient of the 2013 McDaniel College Scholar Alumni Award, will moderate a discussion following the two films.
