The first-ever North Texas Film Festival will be held September 26-29, 2019, and The Star will host two special screenings on Saturday, September 28. The NTXFF will be showing the 10th-anniversary screening of “The Blind Side” at 4:30 p.m. and a 15th-anniversary screening of “Friday Night Lights” at 7:15 p.m. on Tostitos Championship Plaza. Actors and filmmakers representing both films and will do a Q&A following the screenings.
Quinton Aaron had a lead role in “The Blind Side” playing Michel Oher, a homeless and traumatized boy who became an All-American football player and first round NFL draft pick with the help of a caring woman and her family. He will make a red carpet appearance prior to the screening and will participate in a Q&A following the screening. Representing the 2004 film “Friday Night Lights,” Brad Leland, who starred as John Aubrey, and Grover Coulson, who starred as L.V. Miles, will also walk the red carpet and take part in a Q&A following the screening. “Friday Night Lights” is based on H.G. Bissinger’s book, which profiled the economically depressed town of Odessa, Texas, and their heroic high school football team, The Permian High Panthers.
