Harold M. Wixon

Class of 1957

After graduating, Hal joined the US Army where he served three years in Germany. After returning from his tour of duty, Hal attended the University of Houston where he earned a degree in technology. Hal spent many years working for the University of Houston as a programmer until his retirement.

Hal reignited his passion for acting in the 1980’s and made numerous film and television appearances. Highlights from his career include credits in “Arlington Road” starring Jeff Bridges and Joan Cusack, “Sidekicks” starring Chuck Norris, and “A Taste for Killing” starring Michael Biehn and Jason Bateman.

In 1999, Hal founded the Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival in the greater Bay Area of Houston, Texas to showcase the discovery of new and emerging artists. For the past 13 year, the festival has encouraged the work of Independent Filmmakers and promoted the concept of film as an art, offering awards as a means of educational outreach and expanded awareness of independent film to filmmakers around the world. The Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival has grown exponentially since its inception, and is now an internationally recognized festival and has been featured in publications such as Indie Slate. Each year the Festival honors a disgusted actor with a lifetime achievement award. Past recipients include, Marsha Mason, Cheryl Tiegs, Jon Lovitz, Erin Gray, Jasmine Guy and Armand Assante. Hal is extremely proud of the festival which is put on each year with the support of many volunteers. He believes it will continue to grow with their continued support.

Hal has been happily married to his high school sweetheart, Karen Barasch (Class of 1958), for many years.
