2011 marked a total of 71 projects approved by Washington Filmworks since our inception in 2007. The Motion Picture Competitiveness Program has created over four thousand immediate jobs and generated more than $38 million dollars in spending with Washington businesses that provide production and support services for the film industry. With this in mind, we have created a Business Letter of Support that strongly urges our state legislators to renew the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program during the 2012 legislative session.

We ask those businesses who sustain and gain from film production to write their legislators urging them to renew the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program in this upcoming legislative session.  Please take a moment to read over the sample business letter of support and feel free to use it when writing your legislators or include facts from it when writing your own personal letter.

(Please bcc info@washingtonfilmworks.org when writing your legislators.) If you need help identifying your legislators, you can visit this site to find your legislative district, Senators, and Representatives.

If you agree and support our message, we are also asking that you send an email giving us permission to include your business name and logo in our campaign to inform legislators.

  • Provide us with your correct business name and preferred contact information.
  • Include your print-resolution business logo (300dpi or higher). Preferred formats are AI, PSD, EPS, PDF or PNG with a transparent background.
