Reading Contracts: or how I learned to stop worrying and read the small print.

Your film is (almost) done and ready to be shared with the world! Now comes possibly the most nerve-wracking of all contracts; making a deal with a sales agent.

But no need for panic; get informed with Tijana Djukic, who will explain the role of the sales agent in the audiovisual ecosystem and how that is reflected in their contracts.

This is the third session dedicated to reading contracts, covering contracting between directors and producers. This Off-the-Record Seminar is kindly hosted by IEFTA – International Emerging Film Talent Agency.
