By , posted 2 December 2009

The European Audiovisual Observatory was looking after the cash at the Cannes film market this year with its SHOW ME THE MONEY workshop which took place on Sunday 17 May 2009.

Those of you who missed the workshop can now catch up in the comfort of your own office as the film of the workshop is now on line.

The workshop dealt with various finance-related issues of importance to the film industry:

  • Remuneration issues for rightsholders and the role of collecting societies
  • Eurimages and the use of collecting agencies
    Monitoring film circulation along the value chain
  • Panel discussion: Future thinking on regulation, business models and contracts
Over 350 film professionals crowded into the Palais des Festivals to hear the Strasbourg-based Observatory's latest legal and market information.
