From Amy Lillard, Executive Director of Washington Filmworks:
On February 23 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Washington Filmworks is organizing a Film Day in Olympia in support of HB 1554 and SB 5539, the legislation to renew the state’s Motion Picture Competitiveness Program. The production incentive program remains the single best tool we have to win motion picture business in Washington and in this difficult economic climate, your support is critical to get the incentive program renewed! If you have four hours to give to this effort the time to act is now: Washington Filmworks will need between 50 to 75 local film industry workers to volunteer for the Film Day event, to meet with legislators and share how the incentive program impacts the lives of Washington state cast and crew. If you are available and willing to help, please send an email to Info@WashingtonFilmWorks.org with the subject line, “Film Day in Olympia.” Please include your name, affiliation with the industry, address and/or your Legislative District number (To find out who your elected officials click here) in the body of the email. Once your email is received, Filmworks will respond with more detailed instructions. Thank you!
