John’s Impact for Texas Film
If everything’s bigger in Texas, John McCall is as Texan as they come. His vision, integrity, and generosity are oversized, yet much of what he has done for the film community has been done in secret.
John has helped shape the story of Texas film, through direct support of films and filmmakers and through his gifts to Richard Linklater’s Austin Film Society, which has grown into an internationally significant film institution.
Thanks to John’s many gifts, AFS’s mission to advance Texas as a film center thrives with Austin Studios, the AFS Cinema, and the constant growth and evolution of artist services and community media. Consequently, John has helped breathe life into the stories and films of artists across the state of Texas.
