Movie Money

You have a great idea for a movie. You've met your writer and had meeting after meeting about the script. You've attended a film festival or two and found a hot director and a couple of actors. Now you need some cash to make your short or feature.

This evening workshop will run through the basic financing tools available for any business, not just the film business. These tax-efficient finance structures make the UK one of the most attractive places in Europe to raise money for film production. Find out how they work and how to utilise them.

  • Company Structure (what’s best for your film)
  • VCT’s and the bank of Mum and Dad
  • EIS & SEIS – Pros and Cons
  • Government Film Funds
  • Crowd Funding
  • Film Tax Credits & R and D
  • IP – An extra asset?
  • Profit Shares

This evening class outlines the basics of film finance and should provide you with the elements of a plan to finance your movie.
