Washington State Proclamations
Support of SB 6027 from All Corners of the State
The statewide film industry certainly benefits from two major production centers – Seattle and Spokane. Recently, the mayors of both cities have expressed their support of SB 6027 by publishing powerful proclamations. Mayor Condon and Mayor Murray declared March 16 and 17 as “Spokane Film Day” and “Seattle Film Day,” respectively. Here are the Spokane and Seattle proclamations.
And while we do see a concentration of film production in Seattle and Spokane, over the last two years approved productions have filmed in 61 cities across the state, spending film production dollars in every legislative district. The economic impact of the production incentive program can be transformative in local communities and our film liaisons from regions across the state – such as the Olympic Peninsula, San Juan Islands, Whidbey and Camano Islands, and Walla Walla – continue to write letters of support for Washington Filmworks and SB 6027. Here’s one from the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce.
