Event Pick: Texas Film Awards
Texas Film Awards
Austin Studios, Stage 7
by Tribeza Staff
Each year, the Texas Film Awards manages to be as glamorous, fun and distinctly Texas as the year before. The evening begins with red carpet arrivals by honorees, presenters and other special guests. This year’s honorees include filmmaker Hector Galan, producer Sarah Green, filmmaker Jeff Nichols and rising star Tye Sheridan. Shirley MacLaine will be in attendance to accept a lifetime achievement award. “Terms of Endearment,” the 1983 hit in which she starred, will receive the Star of Texas Award. Lesya Milam and Suzanne Court have teamed up to chair the event at Austin Studios. Tables for the event range in price from $25,000 for the coveted Producer Table to $6,000 for the Premiere Table. The Texas Film Awards serves as the primary fundraiser for the AFS’s year-round programs that enhance the cultural landscape of our city and state.
