Mireia Covas | MALLORCA


From April 18 to 22, 2018 (inclusive of travel days), Mallorca will host this training program with which professionals in the audiovisual sector will be able to acquire or expand their knowledge in the law applied to cinema and television. The Mallorca Film Commission is, again, the partner of this event.

Clarification of audiovisual rights is becoming increasingly important, both nationally and internationally. Not all the rights contained in a production are obvious, and only a detailed analysis can avoid mistakes that are very expensive. This is why this world-class workshop offers practical knowledge for identifying and clarifying rights quickly and efficiently.

Erich Pommer Institut, in collaboration with the Mallorca Film Commission, has developed a program that combines theory with practical work, including the best case studies and the latest strategies . < / p>
