CBFF alumnus, Ben Masters (UNBRANDED, 2015) and narrator Matthew McConaughey take us deep into the heart of Texas, exploring its rich, beautiful, and diverse wildlife and lands.

DEEP IN THE HEART is a visually stunning celebration of Texas’ diverse landscapes and remarkable wildlife found nowhere else. Narrated by Matthew McConaughey, the film aims to conserve our remaining wild places, to show the connectivity of water and wildlife, and to recognize the importance of Texas’ conservation on a continental scale.
