This week, Austin Film Society announced the honorees of the 13th annual Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards, to be held at Austin Studios on March 7. The 2013 inductees include actors Annette O’Toole, Henry Thomas, Stephen Tobolowsky and Robin Wright.
Richard Linklater’s film Dazed and Confused, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, will also be inducted. Star Parker Posey will be attending the ceremony to accept the award.
Attending the awards gala fetches a minimum of $500 for an individual ticket, with table reservations going for up to $25,000. The after party, though, is in much closer reach: $30 for an individual ticket and $50 for two. All proceeds from the awards program go toward the Austin Film Society’s filmmaking grants and educational programs designed to find new and emerging film talent across the state.
This year’s honorees’ careers run the gamut of film, TV, music and stage, but as a refresher for placing the faces you’ve probably seen plenty, heres a rundown of the nominees’ more prominent roles.
