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.

While I am not a voting member, I stand in solidarity with all of my film family IATSE members in striking for better hours and overtime pay.

If you've ever enjoyed a film or television show, you owe a debt of thanks to all the IATSE members behind the scenes who made that project happen. These folks often work 12-18 hour days with little to no sleep in between their days, and overtime pay needs to be increased. They are now voting on whether or not to strike for the right to better working hours and better overtime pay. Support your friends and family in the film industry!
