North Bend Theatre hosts the Sierra Club Military Outdoors Veteran Adventure Film Festival, 6 p.m. this Wednesday, July 16.

Guest speaker Ben Patton hosts, as veterans show the films they made in the great outdoors. The festival is open to the public, with prizes and free admission.

Patton is the youngest grandson of WWII’s General George S. Patton Jr. and co-author of “Growing Up Patton: Reflections on Heroes, History and Family Wisdom”, published in 2012 by Berkley-Caliber. Formerly a producer and development executive at New York City’s PBS affiliate, he recently established the Patton Veterans Project, which holds filmmaking workshops designed especially for veterans and military families coping with Post Traumatic Stress as a tool for healing and self-expression.
