Dallas Film Society presents Spotlight Luncheon
Dallas Film Society will honor Trammell S. Crow with The Stodghill Award at the 2019 Spotlight Luncheon. The Stodghill Award recognizes individuals for their long-term philanthropic efforts on behalf of the art of film. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit The Veterans Institute for Film & Media, powered by Capital One. VIFM is an innovative program of Dallas Film that prepares veterans for careers in film, TV and digital content production through education, mentorships and job placements.
The Stodghill Award was created in honor of two of Dallas Film Society’s most ardent supporters, Steve and Anne Stodghill. The award itself is a signature sculpture designed by Brad Oldham Sculpture. In his faceted Art Deco style, Oldham sculpted a Thespis-like character sitting in a movie theater chair with his comedy and tragedy masks in one hand and a bucket of popcorn in the other. The award design serves to express the concept that the viewing experience is highly relatable and timeless while ultimately democratizing the industry, as anyone can be transported via the story told.
