WASHINGTON OFFERS YOU MORE 013 was a year of “more” at Washington Filmworks. We look forward to continuing that mantra in 2014. Since its creation in 2007, Washington Filmworks has helped fund 92 projects, creating more than 6,000 jobs. These projects represent $242 million in economic impact. We’ve also helped hundreds of others find area resources, connect with Washington motion picture workers and talent, and discover the perfect location.
MORE COMMERCIALS In partnership with the Seattle Office of Film + Music and several regional creative agencies, Washington Filmworks launched Commercialize Seattle, as well as our Commercial Business Development Plan. These two initiatives are designed to work hand in hand to attract and support more commercial production in the Evergreen State. Commercialize Seattle is getting national attention and helping to put Washington on the map as a unique destination for your next commercial or ad campaign.
MORE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES The Filmworks Innovation Lab completed two funding cycles. Through this pilot program, Washington Filmworks
works with emerging filmmakers to support the projects that help grow their career, and offers funding assistance to producers spearheading innovative ideas that explore new business models. In the first two cycles we committed $350,000 across ten projects. Watch for these as they come to life, and keep an eye out for the return of the Lab this year.
MORE PARTNERS & RESOURCES Washington Filmworks has put tremendous energy into growing our statewide network of film liaisons. At current count we have 75, which means we can connect you with area representatives in all corners of our state. Plus we have more points of contact for locations, permits, and regional resources than ever before! We will assess our statewide film industry in the coming year, which will reveal even more information about all of the motion picture resources, workers, and vendors available to productions working in Washington. Want to get more bang for your buck? Work with Washington Filmworks to bring your next project to Washington State. WF
Filmmakers and friends celebrate the winners of the latest cycle of the Filmworks Innovation Lab.
