In celebration of the Texas Film Commission's 50th Anniversary, we went to the archives to see how our history has been shaped by the initiatives, programs and productions from the past 50 years. View more from the archives here. #TFC50
March 1, 1972 | Nearly one year after the launch of the Texas Film Commission office, the first-ever newsletter was published. In it, Executive Director Warren Skarren welcomed the Texas production community to be an active part in its development.
The Texas Film Commission belongs to the citizens of Texas. Many of you have already used the services of our office in solving problems, obtaining information, and finding locations. To those of you who have not, we extend an open invitation: We stand ready to assist you at any time.
Today, our mission continues to support the "continuous qualitative growth" of the film production industry in Texas. But our office has evolved since then to the expanded industries of media production: film, television, commercial, animation, visual effects, video game and extended reality.
While our communications remain a unifying force for the moving image industry, we have also evolved these efforts to a digital presence through our website, social media platforms and digital newsletter.
