Film & TV Disbursements

Screenrights Disbursements logo
Worldwide revenue collection and disbursements for Australian producers and their investors

Appoint Screenrights to monitor, collect and disburse returns globally on your next screen project. Trusted by leading production houses and their investors.

How it works

Screenrights Disbursements acts in the capacity of the producer to collect net receipts from sales made around the world after sales agents and distributors have recovered their expenses, deducted their commissions and recouped any advances.

Distributors and sales agents report to Screenrights Disbursements and pay net receipts into the collection account. All returns collected by Screenrights are securely held in trust.

We reconcile incoming receipts, allocate returns in accordance with the recoupment waterfall and disburse amounts to investors and other beneficiaries.

 

We partner with production companies to help them set and forget their royalty administration and investor reporting.

How can we help you?
