Film Investor Contract Template Question
I want to make a contract with my investitures but I don't know how to write and most important what issues should I consider? Do your Filmmaking tools include any of this information? Thanks in advance for any support

This is a great question, thank you! There is a distinction between the documents you will use to find, attract and pitch investors and those that are legally required to actually accept money. The exchange of money and exactly how it is invested is what is heavily controlled by legal channels, and varies by state and country, including how and when the investment is defined, what the investment (money) is worth, how it is used, when it is reimbursed and much more.
When it comes to any and all paperwork discussing the exchange of funds between a film maker and their investors, we encourage you to seek professional legal counsel. The very fact you are asking these questions indicates you should obtain the services of an attorney to determine the best course of action for both you and your investors.
However, FilmProposals does offer a variety of templates, tools and articles to educate you on the film investment process, all designed to help you minimize attorney costs. Here are some areas for you to consider:

FilmProposals always recommends you seek professional legal counsel when it comes to any and all paperwork discussing the exchange of funds between a film maker and their investors. Many attorneys can charge you for the equivalent of a Business Plan, which you can easily do yourself with our Financing Package. However, only an attorney can craft an agreement between you and investors for the legal raising and distribution of funds.
The process of raising film financing is extraordinarily complicated and there is NO "one size fits all" film investor contract template available. Anywhere. Each situation is different and depends on the amount of funds raised, geographic location (country, state, city), film budget, investor types (active vs passive) and many more variables only an attorney can navigate on your behalf.
We wish you the best of luck on your project!
