Didn’t RSVP for Film Day? Show up Anyway!

There are just a couple of days before hundreds of creative professionals arrive at the state Capitol to meet with their state Senator and Representatives and deliver a unified message: “Keep Film in WA!”

This year’s Film Day is the most important ever. Unless we succeed in lobbying legislators to renew the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program during the 2017 legislative session, the program will end on June 30, jeopardizing the livelihoods of countless in the state. We cannot allow that to happen!

The event will include a virtual and augmented reality demo as well a SIFF-curated screening of short films made by Washington State filmmakers, but the main event is lobbying legislators to Keep Film in WA. Don’t worry if it’s your first time. We’ll be pairing up newbies with veterans as well as running a crash course on how to be the perfect film advocate.

Whether you had a chance to RSVP or not, we’d love to see you in Olympia on Monday! Just swing by the registration station on your way in, and we’ll take care of the rest. And don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday morning!
