The Texas Film Hall of Fame, which operates under the auspices of the Austin Film Society, was co-founded in 2001 by Louis Black, the editor of the Austin Chronicle, and Evan Smith, Editor-In-Chief and CEO of The Texas Tribune and former editor of Texas Monthly.

The Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards honors Texans who have made a significant contribution to film or filmmaking, as well as non-Texans who have made significant strides in the advancement of the Texan film industry. Classic Texas films are also honored, with a member of the cast or crew accepting on behalf of his colleagues.

For its first 11 years, the gala celebration was held at Austin Studios, the site of the city's onetime municipal airport, now converted into film production studios. In 2012, the Awards were held in downtown Austin at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. In 2013 the awards returned home and were held at Austin Studios, Stage 7.

In 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005, the gala was emceed by Ann Richards, the former governor of Texas, who died on September 13, 2006. The 2007 gala commemorated her death by celebrating her life and her passion for film, emceed by New York columnist and 2001 inductee Liz Smith.
