RPJ Answers Filmmakers’ Questions on CARES Act Coverage in WMM Webinar
On April 8, RPJ Partner Alice Jump and Associate Liz Stork hosted a video webinar for Women Make Movies (WMM), the New York City-based leading distributor of independent films by and about women, to discuss aspects of the CARES Act most pertinent to filmmakers, production companies and other workers in the entertainment industry. In the webinar they primarily focused on covering Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans for independent contractors, expanded unemployment insurance, and applying for additional federal and state assistance. WMM members from all over the country participated in the webinar, and the discussion was lively and informative on all fronts.
WMM has made a recording of the webinar available online until July 8, 2020, which can be watched on Vimeo here.
WMM has additionally compiled a list of resources for filmmakers and artists for assistance during COVID-19, available here on their website.
Thanks to WMM for providing such great resources to members of their community in this time and inviting RPJ to be a part of their efforts to help.
