The Fort Worth Film Festival screened its final film in 2001, but its death ultimately resulted in the birth of a new group. The next year, the Lone Star Film Society formed in an effort to maintain a celebration of film in Fort Worth. LSFS has partnered with a number of other Fort Worth cultural institutions, including the Amon Carter, Kimbell, and Modern Art museums, to offer year-round programming in a variety of venues. In 2007, the group organized the first-ever Lone Star International Film Festival, held each November in Sundance Square. The inaugural festival drew in films from 13 countries around the world and focused on Latin American filmmakers. LSFS partnered with a pair of Russian film organizations in 2008 to bring Russian cinema to North Texas, showing more than 100 feature and short films in 2009.
