What to Look Out For in a Distribution Deal

This October 17th 2013 post by James Belfer - who is a producer and who also apparently teaches a class on film distribution at NYU (lucky students) - is required reading for film producers.

Here are the six main points James Belfer wants every 21st century filmmaker to consider when making a film distribution deal:

1) Uncross the Revenue Streams
2) Ask For All the Deal Terms
3) Cap P&A
4) Keep the Distribution Fee Low
5) Retain the Right To Sell From Your Own Site
6) Don’t Be Swayed By Number of Markets
