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.

Home away from home. I love prepping here at Koerner, mainly cause I've known the folks who work here since the beginning of my career but also cause I feel held by them. It's great to have support like theirs in this community. lensmonger 🎬

WA state House and Senate approved ESHB which raises the funding for the Motion Picture Competiveness Program to $15M a year with a sunset date of 2030!!! Now, the Governor has to sign the bill into law no later than April 2, 2022.
Thank you to all the Senators and Representatives who voted YES to #KeepFilminWA. This will bring in more money to our state than you can imagine and employ so many actors and production and crew. 🎬πŸŽ₯πŸ₯³
