Photo Essay: Texas Film Hall of Fame 2013 Awards (Part One)

TXFHoF 2013

At long last, here are my (and others') photos from last month's gala Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards. I figure photos don't get stale and we'll all enjoy them just as much as we would have earlier -- even more than if I'd published them during SXSW. (I can always find an excuse.) It was a really lovely and fun evening and I know you'd rather see the photos than read about the event, so here goes. This is actually a two-part feature since I have so many photos to share.

These photos are mine and they're primarily from the red carpet before the awards ceremony. Let's start with the emcee of the evening, Austin actress and musician Dana Wheeler-Nicholson.

It was dark in parts of the room and since I'm not a professional photographer, I ended up with some rather shadowy photos of people on the red carpet. But I think that actually suits this photo of Austin composer Graham Reynolds perfectly.

Here's actress/filmmaker Joey Lauren Adams. She was in Dazed and Confused, which was honored with the Star of Texas award.

Musician Patricia Vonne is having a good time just being on the red carpet.

Photographers are not made of stone, and everyone had to take shots of the little boy toddling down the red carpet. I believe he's the son of one of the Dazed and Confused cast members.

My favorite photo of the evening -- Ryan Long and Sonny Carl Davis. Long was the AFS programs and operations manager when this photo was taken -- now he's the director of programming at Tugg. And if you read Slackerwood, I shouldn't have to tell you who Sonny Carl Davis is.

Update: Here's Part Two, with photos taken at the awards ceremony.
