The Keys to Film Law

Rights Acquisition

Lawyers for the Creative Arts and the Chicago Film Office invite indie filmmakers to a multi-part series of webinars on film law principles. The kick-off segment will introduce the series and focus on the first key to filmmaking – Acquisition of Rights.  Remaining segments will cover the other key film law areas that indie filmmakers need to make their film projects run efficiently and avoid unwelcome surprises. Each segment in the series will feature well-known representatives from the film and legal communities, bringing their years of practical experience to each of the topics.
