This is your chance to Make Art, Take Action, and Get Paid! Our ensembles are brave spaces for you to share your thoughts and beliefs and to make powerful art that speaks to important issues in our Austin community and world.

Creative Action is committed to social justice and inclusiveness. We strongly encourage applications from youth of color, LGBTQ+ & non-binary folx, and differently-abled people.

Youth Cinema Collective

In partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Youth Cinema Collective provides a space for teens who are passionate about filmmaking and film’s ability to share stories that may otherwise go untold. Teens delve into all areas of the filmmaking process as they take their original, high-quality film projects from script and storyboard to shooting on location to a final screening at the Alamo Drafthouse.

Youth Cinema Collective has twice been recognized at Boston Community Art Center’s National Youth Film Festival, has won multiple Austin Youth Film Festival awards, and won the 2018 SXSW Community Service Award for film.
