WIFT brings you Lights, Camera , Lawyers!

A fact and fun-filled evening designed to point out some of the legal in our business pitfalls - before you tumble into them…

It is very exciting and exhilarating when you get the funding to film your particular project - but did you know there are lots of legal issues that you need to keep in mind before the cameras roll - rather than later on…when it may be too late!

Our panel of media law experts are here to help with a simple guide to managing legal risk - copyright, moral rights, waiving rights, IP, defamation, contracts, health and safety legal issues on site, insurance.

Please bring your questions, queries and experiences to share.

Discussion will be chaired by Josie McNaught - journalist turned media lawyer and a team of expert lawyers.
