Longtime Texas Film Commission deputy director Carol Pirie has joined the Austin Film Society as an executive administrator. The Film Commission veteran will help coordinate the transactions and details involved in the expansion of Austin Studios, which will use its news space at the former National Guard Armory and $5.4 million from the 2012 bond election to double its number of tenants.
“We created this position to prepare for the expansion, and Carol, with her 23 years of experience at the Texas Film Commission, is the first person who came to mind,” AFS executive director Rebecca Campbell said. “Carol brings many relationships along with her that will be beneficial as we grow. Her position will also play a key role in all matters that keep the Film Society going, including strategic planning, fundraising and stakeholder relations.”
