Giving back to our community


Year-round film and educational programs for the City of Fort Worth

Youth Workshops
The Lone Star Film Society’s “All in Film” Program is designed to provide thoughtful education through film theory and film producing for children that may be underserved in their community. Previous organizations that this program has benefitted include Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth, Young Women’s Leadership Academy and Cooks Children’s Hospital.



Cinema Language
Hosted by Los Angeles-based filmmaker and Pepperdine University graduate screenwriting professor, Tom Provost, Cinema Language (weekend film workshop) was the Lone Star Film Society’s first step toward expanding film education to adults in our community.




Film Screenings
Programming films that would otherwise not be found in a traditional movie theater, the Lone Star Film Society is dedicated to bringing the world of cinema to Fort Worth. Previous screenings include: “Remembering Newman” film series at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “Happy Birthday Orson Wells” and “The Art of Japanese Animation” at the Modern Museum of Art Fort Worth.  2017 marks the start of our SUNDAY CINEMA SERIES with Four Day Weekend in Sundance Square, where thirty films will screen between March and October.  2016 LSFS screenings

Partnering with Fort Worth’s Near Southside, the Lone Star Film Festival began a summer short film series following the live music performances at Friday on the Green.  This free monthly event attracts thousands of people and has been a wonderful way for the Lone Star Film Society to “give back” to a community hungry for international short film content.

Partnering with the International Screenwriters’ Association (ISA), the Lone Star Film Society offers a full-day screenwriting workshop for screenwriters.

In this six-hour class, Max Timm award-winning author, and veteran writing coach, will break down the steps to building and developing the first draft of a script in order for it to read more like a 2nd or 3rd draft.  This intense workshop condenses twelve weeks of material into one full day.
