TEXAS DAY 2009
TEXAS FILM CELEBRATION
PRESENTED BY AT&T AND THE STATE OF TEXAS
As a capstone event of its 2009 Festival, on Friday, April 3, the DALLAS International Film Festival honored the Lone Star State's rich movie history with A CELEBRATION OF TEXAS FILMMAKING. The Texas Film Celebration’s goal was to promote and to bring awareness to filmmaking in the great state of Texas.
The Texas Film Celebration kicked off with a luncheon and panel discussion at the DALLAS Festival Lounge in Victory Park, sponsored by Women in Film.Dallas and the Dallas Producers Association.
With Governor Rick Perry and other VIPs in attendance, DALLAS hosted a cocktail reception at The House in Victory Park sponsored by the Irving Convention & Visitors Bureau, The Studios at Las Colinas and the Texas Association of Film Commissions. Red carpet arrivals, followed by Governor Rick Perry's declaration of Texas Film Day and a screening of Great Texas moments in Film in AT&T Plaza at Victory Park, were the crowning events of the Celebration.
Texas filmmakers took part in the evening’s festivities, topped off by a star-studded gala and celebration fitting for Texas at Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas.
