The FAQs of Film Distribution: What you Need to Know, What You Should Know, and What You Should Avoid 


Join CLA and Elsa Ramo, Esq., for an overview of how film distribution works. From drafting, negotiating terms as well as finalizing domestic and foreign distribution agreements, you will learn the legal framework that drives the process. We'll then explore the elements of a distribution deal - reporting and other compliance provided by distributors and or/sales agents-representing producers in self-distribution and TV license agreements


Elsa Ramo founded Ramo Law firm in 2005 on the Universal Studios backlot. She graduated from University of San Diego School of Law in 2002 and began her career in entertainment by establishing the Los Angeles office for Davis Dixon Kirby LLP (a royalty litigation firm). The focus of her firm is to provide comprehensive legal services to producers, financiers, creators and owners of film, television and digital content.

These programs are made possible, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.  Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
