Essential Legal Framework
The Art of Negotiating Agreements for Film and TV
December 9 - 11, 2021 in Berlin, Germany

Good agreements are essential for the success of any production. This workshop aims at enabling film and TV producers to handle an agreement like a good script: with passion and a deep understanding of its structures and mechanisms.


Participants will dive deep into the psychological dynamics involved in any negotiation and gain knowledge on how to protect their interests in the best way. In interactive and practical exercises during the workshop, they will have the chance to apply and test the newly learned methods and techniques with other professionals directly.


Internationally renowned experts will also shed light on the secrets of the industry by giving exclusive insights into its inner workings. They will provide a comprehensive overview of VOD-platforms and other potential business partners and equip participants with hands-on tips on setting themselves up for success and entering negotiations with confidence and a strong mindset.
