New Film Sheriff in Town

Tom Huckabee, Lone Star International Film Festival Director
The Lone Star International Film Festival has named Tom Huckabee as its new festival director. The industry insider from Fort Worth has returned to the city of his roots to work on the festival.
Huckabee was executive producer on Frailty (2001), writer of Deep in the Heart (1996), executive consultant on The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005) and writing, directing and producing for various TV programs.
Huckabee is taking on the task of bringing Hollywood and the indie world of film to Fort Worth for the film festival Nov. 8-11, 2007. Lone Star is seeking film submissions for its film competition.
Meanwhile Fort Worth Sister Cities International is presenting a sidebar during the festival focusing on film from our seven Sister City countries: Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico and Swaziland. If you’re an indie filmmaker or film distributor from these countries contact us at
Huckabee was feted in Fort Worth last Thursday in a mobile celebration that moved from the T&P Station Lofts, to the Flying Saucer and finally winding down at 8.0 in Sundance Square.
Make plans now to join us for the festival and film series this November 2007.
