The first ever Southern Sierra Film Festival will launch at the Kern County Museum Sunday, Nov. 14, from 5 to 10 p.m.

The festival aims to celebrate the “unique natural resources” of the southern Sierra mountain communities, according to the group’s website.

The group hopes to inspire future conservationists and  film makers and to “spread the message that our rivers and land are pillars of humanity’s
social and economic well-being, as well as key elements of the planet’s environmental health and biological diversity.”

The festival is supported and organized by the Kern River Conservancy, in partnership with several sponsors.

The event is free to the public with tickets, which you can get HERE.
