Covid-19 Support

Screen Industry

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.

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.

Postponed distribution deadlines

Screenrights wishes to support our members who are being impacted by the unprecedented challenges and uncertainties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Screenrights will process valid claims by members adversely affected by COVID-19 for the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Distribution Periods received during the period 1 May 2020 to 30 April 2021 and pay up to 30 June 2021. All formal competing claim resolution procedures relating to these Distribution Periods will commence after that.

Contact us with any queries.
