Tell Legislators Why You Think Film is Important 

Film Day probably seems like a distant memory to legislators given it was three months ago but, for those of us in the film industry, it left an indelible impression. The energy and enthusiasm from the advocacy day has fueled our campaign, and now we need that energy more than ever.

We’re pleased to share video highlights from Film Day featuring local cast and crew giving powerful testimonials about why film is important in Washington State. Watch the compilation here.

Send this video to the Senate and House budget negotiators listed below with two sentences about why you think a vibrant film industry is vital to Washington State.

Does film work support your family? Does it give you financial freedom to pursue other creative endeavors? Write today and tell YOUR story, and ask that SB 6027 is included in the final budget.
