Keep Film In WA Facts

Washington Filmworks is pursuing legislation during the 2016 session to increase funding for the production incentive program and extend its sunset date. This campaign will feature CALLS TO ACTION and plenty of ways YOU CAN HELP!

Key to our success is the continued support of you – the statewide film community. You can be involved NOW in THREE POWERFUL WAYS:

1. RSVP for Film Day

RSVP for Film Day in Olympia on Thursday, January 21. Last year’s Film Day was a huge success, drawing over 300 film professionals and supporters that had the opportunity to meet with elected officials from their home districts.  Join us for this year’s event – you can RSVP right here!

2. Sign and Share the NEW Keep Film in WA Petition

We are asking film professionals and supporters across the state to sign the 2016 Keep Film in WA petition encouraging elected officials to increase funding for the production incentive program.
***Even if you signed onto the petition last year, you MUST sign it again to be added to the 2016 petition.

3. Sign and Share NEW Business Letter of Support

Last year we had over 260 Washington businesses sign onto our Business Letter of Support. We’ve updated the letter this year and we are looking to add to that number!  If you own a business (or work with a business) that supports the film industry, please sign onto our NEW Business Letter of Support.

Business owners can sign onto the letter by sending an email to
***Even if you signed onto the business letter of support last year, you MUST sign it again to be added to the 2016 letter.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or call our office at 206-264-0667.
