South Australian Film & Screen Centre, Adelaide
The South Australian Film & Screen Centre provides new accommodation for the South Australian Film Corporation and local industry related businesses.
New buildings include production facilities for film and media related industries – two sound stages, presentation and mix theatres, post-production edit facilities and expansive production office and art department facilities.
Existing buildings were sensitively refurbished to accommodate both the Film Corporation’s administration and executive offices, as well as commercial tenancies suites for film and media production companies. New buildings respond to the heritage setting – acknowledging and interpreting the historic symmetrical planning of the precinct, as well as extending the use of the heritage material palette.
Arts SA view this project as the impetus for the rejuvenation of South Australian Film Production, targeting smaller niche markets to similar interstate facilities.
