Don Henley is winging into the Lone Star Film Festival.

The Texas native, an integral member of the Eagles, will present country music singer Clint Black with the Stephen Bruton Award, the festival’s annual honor celebrating the work of a Lone Star musician. Henley is not performing.

The 10th edition of the festival runs Nov. 10-13 at venues on Fort Worth’s Sundance Square, including the Four-Day Weekend Theater and AMC Palace.

In addition to Black, actress Jane Seymour is receiving the LSFF Achievement in Acting Award and will screen her latest film, Bereave, in which she stars along with Malcolm McDowell and Keith Carradine. Black and Seymour will pick up their honors at the Lone Star Film Festival Ball, which this year is taking place on the festival’s opening night.

Earlier on Nov. 10, Black is taking part in “A Conversation with Clint Black” in which he will talk about his career and work. The 45-minute conversation at the Four-Day Weekend Theater is open to the public, and admission is free.

Some of the notable films screening at the festival this year include: Lion, starring Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel; the documentary Maya Angelou and Still I Rise; the animated Nerdland; and a 25th anniversary screening of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Single-ticket general admission is $10. All access badges are $200. For more information, go to www.lonestarfilmfestival.com
