WHAT IS KEEP FILM IN WA?

Keep Film in WA is a grassroots advocacy campaign powered by creative professionals across Washington State.

The goal is to communicate how vital the film industry is to Washington State and how the Washington Filmworks Motion Picture Competitiveness Program (MPCP) builds a strong and robust creative economy.

Since launching the MPCP in 2007, over 24,800 jobs have been created for Washingtonians and approved film projects have brought in an estimated $162 million of direct in-state spending.

What a gift to watch the amazing cast and crew that Josh has gathered as part of turnfilmco production of our short script Spec in Olympia. improvjames was killing it as Phil and the Brotherhood is the perfect bar as a setting. Took some fun bts shots but waiting for permission to post.

This is going to be great and I can't wait to see the finished film. Congrats and good luck to cast and crew!

Basking in the red glow of the downstairs level as I left City Hall today after the Film Commission's inaugural meeting. I am proud to serve on Seattle's first Film Commission in Position 7, representing film production crew, (including but not limited to props, sets, wardrobe, make-up, hair, camera, grip, and electric.) I will also serve as chair of the commission. Seattle is a beautiful place, and a unique city with outstanding talent. I am looking forward to working with my fellow commissioners, who come from many parts of our industry, but who all share a love of Seattle. #noplacelikehome #EmeraldCity #SeattleFilm #KeepFilminWA #SeattleFilmmakers #SeattleCrew #Filmmaker #seattlefilmcommission
