If so, then join the interactive workshop on Film Law, developed by FilmForward in collaboration with attorney Gaico Bos from Bos.Legal. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, September 5th, at MACA, located on the NDSM Wharf in Amsterdam.

During this interactive workshop, we will guide you through the fundamentals of Dutch film law, including various rights such as copyright, neighboring rights, trademark rights, portrait rights, and moral rights. Furthermore, we will discuss the different parties involved in film law, such as producers and creators, and explore recent legislative changes that strengthen the position of creators. The consequences of these changes for creators and producers, including financial implications and shifts in the film sector, will also be addressed.

Composer/jurist Erik Verwey will share insights on the use of music in films. We will cover considerations when using music, the rights involved, and best practices. We’ll also explore how working with streaming platforms may differ and the implications for composers. Additionally, we’ll delve into the role of producers, stock music, and the impact of industry changes on music usage in films.
