Next week, beginning December 1, Washington Filmworks (WF) will accept applications for our Standard Program for projects that commence on or after January 1 of 2014. WF offers funding assistance for qualified in-state expenditures of up to 30% for motion pictures and episodic series with less than six episodes, and up to 35% for episodic series with at least six episodes.
As part of the Commercialize Seattle campaign, WF is holding funds in reserve to attract new commercial clients to Washington State. These funds are allocated through the Commercial Business Development Campaign (CBDP). Find more information here. WF may consider additional commercial applications outside of the CBDP, if funds are available. All additional applications would qualify for a 15% return on qualified in-state spend. Projects would be subject to the Standard Guidelines and Criteria for the program.
Production must meet the following in-state spending thresholds:
- $500,000 Motion Pictures
- $300,000 Episodic Series
- $150,000 Commercial
