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

FilmProposals Answer

Hi Mauricio:

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:

How to use a Film Investor Agreement for Independent Financing

Film Investor Agreement

Film investors know the chances of receiving a profit are slim to none, yet they still want assurance their money is being handled the best way possible...but this is your film and you want to make sure you have control of your project. So, how do you ensure nothing is standing between you and an interested film investor? One way is by using a Film Investor Agreement.

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!

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

    Barry, Filmmaker
  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
