Film Financing and Distribution 

1.5 hours CA MCLE available

ProgramJoin CLA and Encino Lawyers Association for an overview of how film financing and distribution works. From development funds to completion loans and everything in between, learn how a film project receives  financing and the legal framework that drives the process. We’ll then explore the elements of a distribution deal - the demands from both sides of the table and the usual contract language.
