We celebrate the Dobie not only because it shows so many local productions and gives so much support to local and national independent filmmakers nor simply because of its prominent role in such film events as the Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival and SXSW Film- although that would be enough. The Dobie gets an award because its original scheduling and master programmer Scott Dinger offer such ongoing resources and inspirations for Austin's filmmaking and film viewing community.
