Film society opens Creative Media Center

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

Austin Film Society has opened its new Creative Media Center on the Austin Studios property near the Mueller development. The $5.4 million expansion was funded in part with $13.4 million in bond money approved by voters in 2012, and will provide 38,500 additional square feet of office and production space to the studios, which are overseen in part by Austin-based filmmakers such as Richard Linklater. The studios were created out of a onetime base for the Texas National Guard at the former Robert Mueller Municipal Airport. The city provided the 20 acres for the studios in 2000 and voters approved $5 million to fund a first expansion in 2006.
