The Lone Star Film Festival kicks off its 16th weekend in Fort Worth with screenings, events and awards from "Yellowstone" creator Taylor Sheridan.

Founded 16 years ago by film buffs along with actor and Fort Worth native Bill Paxton, it has long been a beacon for filmmakers and cinephiles. Each year, the festival brings unique filmmaking and workshops to Cowtown.

Sheridani is the recipient of the Larry McMurry Award, which honors Indigenous people who have made significant contributions to the film, television and creative industries.
