Dallas Film Society to fete Duvall

Event set to take place November 19

The Dallas Film Society will fete Robert Duvall at its inaugural fall fundraising event, The Art of Film, Nov. 19 at Hall of State, Fair Park.

Org will present Duvall with its Star Award at the ceremony, which also includes a one-on-one between the actor and film critic Elvis Mitchell.

“Dallas is a city that embraces the arts and reveres great actors,” Society prexy and CEO Tanya Foster said in a statement. “This is a historic event for the Dallas Film Society as we give Dallas the chance to pay tribute to a true movie star outside of the Film Festival mold.”

Previous Star Award recipients include Lauren Bacall, Sydney Pollack, Charlize Theron and Francis Ford Coppola.

Funds from The Art of Film will go to support the non-profit’s education and community outreach programs. More information can be found at http://www.dallasfilm.org.
