Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to sponsor the 7th Annual Shanghai Forum 2019 taking place on June 15, 2019 where partner Scott Edel will be speaking on the panel “Trends in Financing and Distributing Chinese Films”.
About the event:
The Chinese film industry has catapulted itself into the global market, adopting new techniques for financing and distribution at a record-level speed. As this occurs, industry players are turning their attention towards completion guarantees, which are designed to ensure that the producer will complete and deliver the film to the distributor. From financing and budgeting to physical production and distribution, completion bonds increase investor confidence throughout the course of the project. This western technique has become a staple for Hollywood studios and production companies around the world. During this session, seasoned film industry practitioners will help answer: How can we speed the adoption of completion guarantees in China? How can they be used to solve problems in film financing? And what other strategies can improve the distribution process and increase a film’s ROI?
