DCTV Presents Legal Clinic with Innes Smolansky: Acquiring Life Rights for Documentary & Narrative Films
DCTV Presents Legal Clinic with Innes Smolansky:
ACQUIRING LIFE RIGHTS FOR DOCUMENTARY AND NARRATIVE FILMS

Monday, May 10th, 7:30pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette Street, NYC

During the initial stages of a film's development, ideas are turned into scripts, people are turned into characters, and the idea of a film as property first takes shape. No matter the type of production a filmmaker seeks to make, in order for a film to be picked up by a distributor, the filmmaker must have the legal right to tell a subject's life story.

Join us as entertainment attorney Innes Smolansky lead this seminar that will explore the main points producers need to think through when negotiating Life Rights deals, including: asking for rights to produce one film or multiple, narrative or documentary, etc.; consultation services and film publicity services; getting the rights from the estate if the main subject is deceased; optimal payment structure; the term of the agreement; retaining producer attachment for future productions involving your subject, and much more.

Innes Smolansky is a New York based entertainment attorney specializing in representing producers, production companies, writers, authors, directors, performers and composers in independent motion picture production, documentaries, television and business and personal management deals. Her extensive and wide-ranging experience in drafting, reviewing, negotiating and counseling clients on development, financing, production, talent, employment, music, management and distribution deals has earned her a reputation as a skilled, savvy, and well-respected attorney in the entertainment industry.

Ms. Smolansky was born in St. Petersburg Russia and studied at Brown University (B.A. magna cum laude); University of Pennsylvania (J.D.); University of Paris X (Diploma D'Etude Juridique Europeenes).
