Dallas Film Society presents 10th Anniversary Luncheon
The Dallas Film Society presents their 10th Anniversary Luncheon, honoring longtime DFS supporters, members, and noted film lovers Anne and Steve Stodghill.
Avowed movie buffs Anne and Steve Stodghill have both passionately supported several film causes locally in Dallas, and nationally as well. Steve has served as a Board Member of the Dallas Film Society, and together they were Co-Chairs of the 2009 Dallas International Film Festival, as well as being the hosts of the annual Stodghill Classic Movie Night at each of the past editions of the Dallas International Film Festival and AFI Dallas (as it was previously known). In addition, Steve is also Vice-Chair of the National Council of the American Film Institute, and is an avid collector of movie memorabilia (with a fondness for items from the Batman comics, television show and films, as well as John Wayne films).
The luncheon will feature Todd Wagner (Founder and Chairman of The Charity Network, and CEO of 2929 Entertainment), a former Dallas Star Award honoree as a guest speaker who will also be interviewed by the Dallas Morning News’s Robert Wilonsky as part of the event, Tom West, the Chief Advancement Officer for the American Film Institute, and Anita Swift and Marisa Wayne, the granddaughter and daughter of beloved Western Cinema legend John Wayne, joining DFS’s Board Chair Mark Denesuk, and DFS President and CEO Lee Papert addressing those gathered to honor Anne and Steve Stodghill. The event chairs for the luncheon are Suzanne Bock Grishman, the Executive Director of the Mercury One Foundation, and her husband, Michael Grishman.
