Screenrights is working hard to get any payments due to you into your hands as soon as possible
Screenrights staff are working hard to pay any secondary royalties due to you as soon as possible, knowing that they may be more important than ever during this period. We are confident that we will be able to maintain a high level of service for all of our members.

Find out more here.

Our Film & TV Disbursements Service will be disbursing funds as soon as practically possible after amounts have been received into the disbursement account. This will mean irregular disbursement periods, and faster payment.

The Screenrights 2020 Cultural Fund remains open for applications until 5pm AEST Wednesday 29 April, and we look forward to supporting the next round of initiatives.
