The Filmworks Innovation Lab is designed to invest in our local
creative community and to encourage the development of original
storytelling that capitalizes on new forms of production and technology.
By leveraging our existing film infrastructure and the diversity of our
in-state technology resources, Washington is uniquely positioned to
incubate a groundbreaking digital entertainment platform that fosters a
new Creative Economy for Washington State.
WHAT IS AVAILABLE?
The Filmworks Innovation Lab
offers funding assistance as a return on qualified in-state expenditures
on the production of motion picture content (including labor and talent
who are Washington State residents). Projects must spend between
$25,000 - $499,999 in Washington and it is important to note that this
is not a grant, rather a reimbursement on a project's investment in
utilizing Washington State workers, vendors and goods. The level of
funding assistance is determined per project and varies according to
each approved project's merit and application.
Washington Filmworks will begin acception applications in August 2014. For a detailed description of the application process, see the current Filmworks Innovation Lab Guidelines and Criteria (dated 5/28/14).
