Glen Powell, now a certified Texas film icon, boasts an impressive resume including Oscar® nominations, blockbuster hits, and collaborations with esteemed directors like our own Richard Linklater. Powell stars alongside Adria Arjona in Linklater’s highly anticipated film, HIT MAN.

To mark this milestone, the Austin Film Society will induct Powell into the Texas Film Hall of Fame at the official Netflix premiere of HIT MAN. Join us in celebrating his remarkable career at AFS’s fundraising gala, A Toast to Texas Film, on May 16 at Troublemaker Studios.
