The 2019 Wild Texas Film Tour is coming to 14 Texas cities over the next couple of months. The tour features Texas wildlife, adventure, and conservation short films along with characters from the films, filmmakers, wildlife biologists and other experts.
“If you are intrigued by Texas’ only Wild and Scenic River, bringing back Bighorn sheep to historic habitat, cutting edge quail research, an 11-year old’s directorial debut about fishing with her dad, or a U.S. Army veteran hunting for solace, then there’s a film for you,” said filmmaker Ben Masters, who will host the tour.
The tour will be coming to the following cities:
Dallas (Texas Theater) on Jan. 15
Fort Worth (Amon Carter Museum) on Jan. 17
Tyler (Studio Movie Grill) on Jan. 18
