“We are proud to present the award recipients of this year’s Dallas International Film Festival,” said Johnathan Brownlee, CEO & president of Dallas Film and executive director of Dallas International Film Festival. “Film is a labor of love, a medium for sharing our ideas, passions, interests and stories. We thank everyone who submitted their work to Dallas IFF. Putting your film out for the world to see is like opening a piece of your mind and heart for the world to experience. We applaud you for contributing to the film industry because films have the power to change our lives outside the theater in tangible ways.”
