The date may have changed but the party is on! The Austin Film Society usually hosts the Texas Film Awards on the evening prior to SXSW. This year, Texas’s film and television luminaries will come together to support the impactful artistic and educational programs of AFS on March 3, 2023. And here’s another piece of news. This year’s festivities will take place at Willie Nelson’s Luck, TX!

Located just outside of Austin (as mentioned in the Lukas Nelson tune), Luck is a movie-set-turned-venue where Willie Nelson happens to live part-time. You can learn more about it here. The ranch is also home to the Luck Reunion – something you need to experience at least once in a lifetime. Here’s why!

The annual fundraising event will include a glamorous red-carpet, an awards ceremony inducting this year’s newest members of the Texas Film Hall of Fame and an auction supporting up-and-coming filmmakers, featuring uniquely curated packages for Texas film and television fans and more.

Both tables and tickets are limited, so don’t miss the opportunity to be at the center of Texas film culture! Get your tickets here.

Now for this year’s special guests!
