We learned today that House members will no longer be in Olympia on Wednesday, May 17th, so we have put our House Lobby Day on hold. Don’t despair though, there are still ways to act today!

The Keep Film in WA team is organizing a handful of meeting for key legislators. Do you live or work in one of our targeted districts?

District 3: Represents the heartland of the downtown Spokane area, extending to the North Side and South Hill.

District 38: Represents part of Snohomish County including Everett, Marysville and Tulalip.

District 47: Represents part of southeast King County including part of Kent, Covington and Auburn.

District 48: Represents part of King County including part of Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, and all of Medina, Clyde Hill, Yarrow Point and Hunts Point.

If you live in one of these districts and would like to participate in these very important meetings, please email Washington Filmworks Executive Director Amy Lillard at Amy@WashingtonFilmworks.org.

It has been made clear to the Keep Film in WA campaign that the only way the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program will get included in the final budget is if constituents reach out to their elected officials. If you aren’t in one of the districts listed above, don’t let that stop you. Please write and call your Senator and Representatives and ask that the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program get included in the final budget.
