The 11th Annual Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival Mixer and Awards 09-19-10


If you missed the 11 Annual Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival, you missed out on a lot of fun, films and meeting some filmmakers/MovieMakers. The organizer and founder of the festival, Hal Wixon, was able to pull together a wonderful event and produce a very elegant atmosphere which started with a Mixer at the Capri Villa Restaurant in Seabrook, Texas on Friday night, September 17th, 2010.
This was an excellent opportunity to mix, mingle and rub elbows with some talented filmmakers.  Actress and Super Model Cheryl Tiegs was there and was so gracious to mix and meet everyone that came to the event. She was giving out autographs and taking pictures with anyone who asked. The food was outstanding and, in all, it was a wonderful and relaxing night.
C-47 Houston Entertainment Magazine was there on the invitation of Mr. Wixon, and we took some pictures:

The next night, Saturday, September 18th, Mr. Wixon, presented the Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival's Cascade Awards Banquet at the NASA Hilton Hotel in Clear Lake, Texas. Again, the atmosphere was wonderful. This was another opportunity to meet and rub elbows with some filmmakers. This was also the time for awards. C-47 Houston Entertainment Magazine was awarded the Ernie Robertson Esteem Award.  The award is the first in this category. Mr. Robertson was at one time a founding member of our magazine, then titled "C-47 Monthly" Mr. Robertson was diagnosed with Cancer in 2008 and has since left us. He will be remembered and this award will live on with the Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival. Some pictures were took for us, as the producer was unavailable on this night. You can see some of the pictures below:

SideNote: Editorial:
The Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival is one of Houston's better festival. For the past couple of years the festival has been suffering from setbacks related to Hurricane Ike. The area is just now coming back and this festival is in need of support in order to continue. It's long term benefit to the area is unmistakable. Please don't let this festival become a memory. Support it, go to it and help it.
