America Film Festival Coming in December!

Financing

  • Equity driven financing structure — whereby the majority of the finance plan is raised from private equity sources (private investors, high net worth individuals, family, friends, etc.)
  • Pre-sales driven structure — whereby some/many of the films domestic and international licensing rights are pre-sold to enable a senior financier to cash flow the production.
  • International co-production/soft-money structure — whereby the majority of the finance plan is raised from various international grant or arts programs and tax incentive regions.
  • 25% of the total budget in equity (first money in from private investors)
  • 25% of the total budget from tax credits/rebates (domestic and international tax credit programs)
  • 25% of the total budget from executed pre-sales (typically foreign pre-sales as most productions hold on to the domestic sale for potential upside after the film has been completed)
  • 25% of the total budget in gap (defined as the risk taken in first position against the unsold territories not executed from the above pre-sales)
