DIFF President, Lynn McBee Thanks Crowd & Says Good Night at Dallas International Film Festival

Dallas International Film Festival gaining steam and standing

By Jackie Wright

They call it "Big D" and there is a reason for it.  The Dallas International Film Festival with its "Star Awards" closing weekend is just a reminder that "they do it big in Texas."   The Dallas Film Society led by Lynn McBee, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Lee Papert, President & CEO, pulled out all the stops as it honored Laura Linney, Bernie Pollack, Eric Pleskow, and Gabourey Sidibe with "Dallas Star Awards", last Friday kicking off the concluding weekend.  In addition, The Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF) screened more than 180 films from 27 countries during its sixth annual event, April 12-22.

From the Festival Village at Mockingbird Station to the strategic use of venues such as historic Majestic Theater, the Hotel Palomar, Texas Theater, Nasher Sculpture Center, it was a stylish artistic cultural experience graciously infused with southern comfort and hospitality.

Covering the event in conjunction with San Francisco based LaHitz Media, this reporter was reminded of director and filmmaker Jacquie Taliaferro's constant refrain about "jobs and money" generated by the film and entertainment industry and the need to cultivate commerce in communities of color as films and entertainment are created.

Jackie Wright of Wright Enterprises has her own story and it's because of the sensitivity developed from the media surrounding the loss of her father as a Fallen Hero serving as a Honor Guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara on March 9, 1964 that she works fast and accurately with compassion for those who desire media coverage and those who find themselves in the midst of unwanted media inquiries.  

Christmas 2014 Arlington National Cemetery

As 2014 neared its end, the Wright Family noted its accomplishment of honoring Fallen Viet Nam War Hero Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. and his wife, Ouida F. Wright by having them buried at Arlington National Cemetery during it's 150th Anniversary.   Wright, who served as an Honor Guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara at the time of his death was moved from a segregated cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida and reburied with his wife Ouida F. McClendon Wright at Arlington National Cemetery on March 10, 2014.  It was the day after the March 9 anniversary of their deaths in 1964 and 1970 respectively.  See Full Article.

Days after the article was written with the reference that the Wright Siblings  were still waiting on the headstone to mark their parents new resting place, they received a photo from their cousin retired Major Dexter McLendon Sr. that his friend had taken after the Cristmas wreath laying by Wreaths Across America.  So days before Christmas, the Wright Siblings not only received the gift of knowing the headstone had been placed, but also the gift of Mrs. Ginger Shannon Young had fulfilled her promise, "I'll make sure your parents will get a wreath for Christmas."    The Wrights met Mrs. Shannon Young at the reburial of their parents in Arlington on March 10, 2014.  They had a connection that for years the Wrights were not aware of, both Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon and Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. were honored at the base in Vinh Long, Viet Nam (Shannon-Wright Compound) , after their deaths in March of 1964.  On the Viet Nam War Memorial, their names are near each other.  Fifty years after their deaths, their families connected in life to remember the sacrifice they and others made to the United States of America.

 
Mrs. Ginger Shannon Young, volunteer with Wreaths Across America lays a Christmas Wreath at Arlington Gravesite of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. and Ouida Fay Wright.  
The names of Helicopter Crew Chief, Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr., who died March 9, 1964 as an honor guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara and Pilot Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon, who died March 15, 1964, both of the U.S. Army 114th Aviation Company, follow each other on the Viet Nam War Memorial.
