Big Thanks to our 2017 Dallas International Film Festival Sponsors!
We would like to take a moment to thank the sponsors of the 2017 Dallas International Film Festival, whose continued support make this annual celebration possible.
We’d also like to give a shout out to our volunteer Lunch Sponsors and Beverage Sponsors: Planet Sub, Twisted Root, Taco Joint, Jersey Mike’s, Eureka!, Buda Juice, Crazy Water, Stella Artois, The Wine Group and Deep Eddy Vodka.
Please join us in thanking them all by frequenting their businesses, using their services, naming a child or two after them — or in whichever way you prefer to show gratitude. These sponsors have helped us make film “Bigger in Texas,” and for that we are endlessly thankful.
