ABOUT SEATTLE'S OFFICE OF FILM + MUSIC
The Office of Film + Music (OFM) is committed to grow the creative economy through support and promotion of film, music and related industries, and create equitable opportunity for local creatives in their fields. It does this by developing policies and providing leadership that builds commercial markets for film and music business growth, advances safety and economic growth in the nightlife industry, and logistically coordinates permits for film and special events. While OFM extends support to multiple creative industries, the office focuses on advancing four primary sectors: film, music, special events, and nightlife.
The mission of the office is to support and equitably grow the creative economy, with a focus on strengthening the film, music, nightlife, and special events sectors.
