All projects fully funded and scheduled to film this fall or winter are invited to apply.


Washington Filmworks will open a short application window for funding assistance for its standard incentive program on Friday, October 7 to consider fully funded projects that plan to film in fall 2022 or winter 2023. Limited funds are available and projects must go into production within 120 days of being approved for funding assistance.

“The lure of our spectacular Washington locations and the heat coming of the legislative session has put our state at the top of many producers’ lists who are looking to film this fall and winter. Our goal is always to get our cast and crew working on set and we are looking forward to approving projects during this short application window,” said Amy Lillard, Executive Director of Washington Filmworks. “Behind the scenes, we continue to work on raising funds and developing new initiatives in anticipation of officially launching the new program in March 2023 – just in time for our summer filming season!”

Prior to applying, applicants are strongly encouraged to read the Guidelines & Criteria and to review the application. All completed applications must be submitted no later than Wednesday, October 26, 2022.
