Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Danny McBride and Robert Rodriguez were a few of the numerous actors and filmmakers who walked the red carpet in Austin last night for the 14th annual Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards.

The event honors the best in Texas film and raises funds for the year-round programs and services of the Austin Film Society. It also has grown into one of the most glamorous nights in Austin. Past honorees have included recent Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey, Billy Bob Thorton, Woody Harrelson and writer-director Terrence Malik among other Hollywood notables.

The North Texas Daily caught up with some of honorees and supporters along the red carpet at Stage 7 at Austin Studios last night. We talked to McBride (“Eastbound & Down”), Wilmer Valderrama (“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”), Danny Trejo (“Machete,” 2010) and writer-director Richard Linklater (“Dazed and Confused,” 1993) about the art of film and what college courses they would teach to UNT students.
