CCAC Announces Free Film Screenings during Earth Month

April 4 & 25 at Alfred University
April 15 & 17 at Alfred State College

Concerned Citizens of Allegany County (CCAC) is proud to co-sponsor several documentary film screenings during the month of April, which is recognized internationally as Earth Month. Earth Day takes place globally on April 22nd. Visit to learn more.

First up is the new documentary film Denying Access: NoDAPL to NoNAPLto be shown at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, 2019 as part of a weekly Critical Cinema Film Series, a student-led film series curated by senior Emma Hilderbrant. The screening takes place in Holmes Auditorium, in Harder Hall at Alfred University in Alfred, NY. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. A discussion with the filmmaker will follow.

Denying Access: NoDAPL to NoNAPL (2019, 95 min) is a gripping and emotionally charged documentary chronicling the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and from the Seneca Territory working to oppose the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) and Northern Access Pipeline (NAPL).

This Indigenous-led movement has brought together people from around the world in an unprecedented call for the recognition of Indigenous rights and an end to an environmentally destructive fossil fuel industry. Senecas went in large numbers to "stand with Standing Rock” against the Dakota Access pipeline and came home to western New York find a fracked gas pipeline being planned just upstream from their territories.

The Northern Access Pipeline is a proposed 97-mile high-pressure pipeline that would cross 180 streams, 270 wetlands and 7 ponds in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Erie counties, carrying highly-pressurized fracked gas from the drilling fields in Pennsylvania to Buffalo, NY and then into Canada for export to other nations.

Dr. Jason Corwin, Executive Director of the Seneca Media and Communications Center located on the Seneca Nation of Indians in Salamanca, NY is one of the filmmakers of Denying Access: NoDAPL to NoNAPL. Dr. Corwin will take audience questions after the screening. You can learn more about the film, its makers and the issues surrounding water protection, and view the film’s trailer by visiting

CCACs own documentary, “My Name is Allegany County” will be screened Monday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 17as part of the Soils class (Ag and Vet Tech dept.) taught by Lecturer Jessica Hutchison. These screenings are free and open to the public and begin at 2:00 p.m. in Room 102, Agriculture Building on the Alfred State College campus, 10 Upper College Drive, Alfred, NY. CCAC members who participated in the 'Bump The Dump' movement are expected to attend.

This year marks the 29th anniversary of the successful grassroots battle to 'Bump The Dump' in Allegany County, NY. Faced with the prospect of becoming host to a large scale low-level radioactive waste dump, people mobilized quickly. When 5,000 people attended the first public meeting, NYs Siting Commission got a taste for the fierce, unyielding opposition they were about to endure. In the era before Internet and mobile phones, activists relied on land-lines and CB radios to communicate. Thankfully, video cameras and the regional media captured archival footage of this uplifting struggle, which has been preserved as an important historical record in this documentary film.

A third screening of “My Name is Allegany County”will take place on Thursday, April 25th, also at Holmes Auditorium in Harder Hallat Alfred University in Alfred, NY. Once again, the film is hosted by Critical Cinema.Doors open at 6:30 p.m. CCAC members who participated in the 'Bump The Dump' movement are expected to attend.

Concerned Citizens of Allegany County, Inc., is a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation that continues to fight against pollution, focusing primarily on ending the expansion of infrastructure related to fracking, and halting the disposal of hazardous and radioactive gas field wastes in Allegany and Steuben county landfills. We meet monthly in Angelica and welcome interested parties to join the effort to raise awareness and protect our clean water, soil, and air. Tax-deductible contributions can be mailed to: CCAC PO Box 425, Angelica, NY 14709. Learn more at or follow us on Facebook. Email or call/text 585-466-4474.
