The deadline for submitting preliminary forms to the Filmworks Innovation Lab (Film Cycle) has been extended until Friday, September 7th at 5 p.m. The Filmworks Innovation Lab is designed to invest in Washington’s local creative community and to encourage the development of original storytelling that capitalizes on new forms of production and technology. The WF Board of Directors may commit up to $350,000 annually and funding assistance will be administered in two cycles – the Film Cycle (opened August 2012) and the Innovation Cycle (opens January 2013).

WF is now accepting preliminary application forms for the Film Cycle.  Please go to our website for detailed information on the Film Cycle, as well as the full program guidelines and criteria. We’ve also added a page for Frequently Asked Questions. Additional questions can be directed to or call (206) 264-0667.
