Partner Presentation: Managing the Financial Risks of Cross Border Productions

Tuesday, June 12, 2018
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Ivor Petrak

Going cross border to produce your next show or film creates big opportunities, but with those opportunities come significant risk. The foreign currency element is one risk that producers need to be aware of given the heightened levels of volatility in markets these days. Any perceived currency advantage when a project is greenlit can quickly disappear by the time the cameras roll, putting the production in jeopardy. This session will help you understand the steps you need to take to effectively manage your FX risk to ensure your project comes in on budget.
