The Dallas Film Society recognizes the Founders Circle whose incredible vision and generous support has been instrumental in allowing us to fulfill our mission. Their investment has not only touched the lives of thousands of students and filmmakers across the globe, but has also enriched the Dallas Arts District by celebrating and honoring excellence in film and its significance to the vitality of our community.
The Festival gratefully acknowledges the vital contribution of the Founders in creating and sustaining one of the finest film festivals in the United States.
The 2009 Festval is respectfully dedicated to Ruth Mutch.
