Film and TV disbursements for Australian producers and their investors
As a trusted collection agency with more than 25 years experience collecting and distributing royalties to content owners, we’re keen to provide the industry with a state-of-the-art service option for Disbursement Administration that’s accessible, reliable and rewarding.
Here’s a quick summary of what Disbursements by Screenrights offers:
Quality and detailed reporting
Peace of mind and protected returns
24/7 access online
Analytics on sales and investment returns
A suite of DASA products
How does it work?
All you need to do is select a DASA product.
Screenrights will prepare a Disbursement Administration Service Agreement (DASA) to circulate to all parties and assist with the contracting process.
We’ll also touch base with your distributors to let them know Screenrights is handling the disbursements for you. Distributors and sales agents will then pay revenues into secure bank account.
When returns flow through for your film, tv series or documentary, Screenrights collects the gross receipts, calculates who gets what, and disburses the returns to you and your investors.
All parties are notified of income received, expenses claimed and disbursements made.
You can watch it all happen in real-time via our online portal.
Our Clients & Partners
Disbursement of gross receipts has become such a specialised activity that it often gets put in the too hard basket when time is short. I think it’s great that Screenrights has now moved into this space, especially given their experience in royalties distribution over many years. It seems like a natural evolution of their services.
Matchbox welcomes Screenrights into the Disbursement arena, and we have been very pleased with the way that the service is developing. All of our investors expect accurate disbursements and transparent reporting – and, much like the service we have received from Screenrights across the educational space, we know that we can rely on Screenrights to deliver this.
We are pleased Screenrights is taking on this important function. It is reassuring that the industry will continue to have access to an Australian disbursement service. Screenrights is ideally placed to fill that role given its relationships in the industry over many years and the similarities between its current function and this new business.
