THE COUNTDOWN IS ON — FILM DAY IS ONE MONTH AWAY!
RSVP Today for Film Day in Olympia on Monday, March 13
Each year hundreds of creative professionals descend on the state Capitol on Film Day to meet with their state Senator and Representatives. These face-to-face conversations have proven to be one of the most powerful ways in which we convey the important impact our industry has statewide.
This year’s Film Day is likely the most important in years as we try to get the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program (MPCP) renewed during the 2017 legislative session. Without renewal, the MPCP program ends June 30, 2017, jeopardizing the livelihoods of countless in the state. Please join us on Film Day and help lobby state legislators to Keep Film in WA!
This year’s event will include a virtual and augmented reality demo on the Capitol steps as well a screening of short films made by Washington State filmmakers curated by our friends at the Seattle International Film Festival. Show your spirit on Film Day by wearing a green Keep Film in WA tee-shirt. Order one here.
Last year we had 250 people attend the event. Can we do better this year? Can we get representatives to attend from EVERY LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT? Yes, WE CAN!
