What Is It?

The Feature Documentary Director Agreement is a core agreement between the production company or producer and a Documentary Film Director.  This agreement is designed for a single Feature Documentary as opposed to an Episodic or Series documentary.  It can be used for a theatrical Feature Film or for direct broadcast on any channel, including off-content streaming.  Under this Agreement the Producer of the feature is hiring the Director as a Work-For-Hire.  A Documentary Production is very different than a scripted production and requires its own style and type of contract.  This core Documentary Production Agreement contains all the essential terms and conditions including compensation, term, alternative dispute resolution clause, and more.

Also known as a Director Agreement, Documentary Director Agreement, Documentary Film Director Agreement. Film Director Agreement for Documentary.

All the Creators’ Legal contract templates have been professionally drafted by experienced entertainment and media lawyers.
