The BTFC Presents Legal Agreements for Film by The Filmmakers Legal Clinic
On Tuesday, March 8th at 4:00PM PT | 7:00PM ET, The Black TV & Film Collective and The Filmmakers Legal Clinic by Cardozo’s School Law for a conversation on Legal Agreements for Film.
Whether you’re an actor, writer, producer or director – creativity is vital in the entertainment industry! But, did you know that understanding the business of filmmaking is just as critical?
Join the BTFC in our ongoing partnership with the Filmmakers Legal Clinic at Cardozo’s School of Law as we talk about legal agreements for film! Learn about the legal intricacies to understand that can help YOU and your project not get caught up in legal red tape or caught in agreements that don’t serve you!
FLC will be reviewing how to read a film contract – focusing on common terms in the most common service agreements, typical major terms in any contract and what they mean, what boilerplate language is and its importance. There will be a Q & A so bring any questions you have about legal agreements!
