The Development Finance Agreement is an early-stage investment contract for an investor in a film project. This legal contract outlines the terms and conditions between a film production company or producer (Producer) and an investor (such as a financial institution, investor, or film financing entity) for the provision of financing to develop a film project. This agreement establishes the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of both parties involved in the film development finance transaction.
The terms and conditions of film development finance can vary significantly depending on factors such as the project’s potential market value, the track record of the filmmakers involved, and the perceived commercial viability of the film. It’s important for filmmakers and production companies to carefully consider the financial implications and potential obligations associated with film development finance. For films, it is essential to document every deal properly to have a clean chain of titles for distribution or acquisition.
This is a legal document that details the terms and conditions between a Producer/Production Company and an Investor.

Having the right deal in place is essential to protecting you and your production. Without the right contract in place, you can expose yourself, your company, and your film.

I found Creators Legal very helpful and easy to use, that’s why I subscribed for the year. I picked a contract, used the form builder then switched to the Full Editor feature to modify/add certain things that pertain to us.

I loved the fact that I could find legal agreements for all marketing areas: podcast, social media, photography and more in one place! The annual subscription is worthy because I have access to all templates. The interface is also user friendly and very easy to use!
Easy to use templates, and I like that I can quickly jump on here and send out contracts as I need them. I’ve used single contracts but it’s worth getting the subscription if you’re signing contracts regularly. Better than copy/pasting contracts as I was doing before.
