For over 35 years FilmNorth has supported screenwriters, providing education and professional development services that help them learn their craft and build sustainable careers. FilmNorth has long championed the principle that artists be paid for their work—and paid fairly. This is how artists not only survive, but thrive. 

FilmNorth supports the Writers Guild of America as they seek equitable compensation and sustainable working conditions. 

There are many ways to show your support—from amplifying striking writers’ voices on social media to donating to a variety of support groups. One group is the Entertainment Community Fund.  The fund supports other Hollywood employees, like crew members and assistants, who are affected by the strike. To make a tax-deductible donation, just press ‘Donate’ on their website and choose “Film and Television” in the drop-down menu. 

You can find out why writers are striking and get links to all things strike-related here. The future of our industry is at stake! #WGAStrong
