COUNTDOWN TO SESSION
The 2016 Legislative Session Opens January 11
Now that the holidays are over, the legislative race begins! Washington Filmworks wishes to remind you that the legislative session begins in ONE WEEK on January 11.
It’s a short session of only 60 DAYS – so it’s fast and furious this year. Look for specific calls to action every Thursday of the legislative session.
As you know, here are THREE WAYS you can get involved beforehand:
1. RSVP FOR FILM DAY
RSVP For Film Day in Olympia on Thursday, January 21. Last year’s Film Day was a huge success, drawing over 300 film professionals and supporters that had the opportunity to meet with elected officials from their home districts. Join us for this year’s event – you can RSVP right here!
2. SIGN AND SHARE THE NEW KEEP FILM IN WA PETITION
We are asking film professionals and supporters across the state to sign the 2016 Keep Film in WA petition encouraging elected officials to increase funding for the production incentive program. We will use this petition on Film Day as another reminder to elected officials that film is important in Washington State.
***Even if you signed onto the petition last year, you MUST sign it again to be added to the 2016 petition.
3. SIGN AND SHARE THE NEW KEEP FILM IN WA BUSINESS LETTER OF SUPPORT
Last year we had over 260 Washington businesses sign onto our Business Letter of Support. We’ve updated the letter this year and we are looking to add to that number! If you own a business (or work with a business) that supports the film industry, please sign onto our NEW Business Letter of Support.
Business owners can sign onto the letter by sending an email to Info@WashingtonFilmworks.org.
***Even if you signed onto the business letter of support last year, you MUST sign it again to be added to the 2016 letter.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Info@WashingtonFilmworks.org or call our office at 206-264-0667.
