Local Filmmakers on the Eastside Tell Their Story

Final preparations are underway for Film Day in Olympia. Tomorrow, over 250 film professionals will descend on Olympia to talk to legislators and tell them their personal stories about why film is important in Washington State. The weeks leading up to this monumental event have been inspired and the energy tomorrow on the Capitol Campus will (no doubt) be infectious.

For those who cannot attend Film Day in Olympia, we wanted to share a series of videos produced by the Spokane Film Project. These videos capture the enthusiasm and spirit that we believe will define our events tomorrow.

Have you ever wondered how much time cast, crew, and local vendors dedicate to a production? How about the copious opportunities the industry provides to recent film graduates? And how many dreams have been realized through the statewide film incentive program?

The Spokane Film Project has all these answers and more in their three insightful videos touching upon film goals both professional and personal in all corners of the state.

We thank the Spokane Film Project for these videos (and the countless film professionals who gathered in cold weather at Riverfront Park to tell their story.)

Watch them all here:
