Criteria - How We Work

The following key elements must be in place in order for funding to be approved. Financial Equity Film Partners’ criteria is as follows:

  • All production elements in place including director, actors, clean chain of title, etc.
  • Domestic Distributor (Studio)
  • Sales estimates showing profitable overages (net revenue over amount financed)
  • Completion bond attached (bond cost is included in the film budget)
  • Legal documentation completed

All key production elements are in place including final script, director, major actors, contracts, chain of title of the rights, etc.

The "Domestic" rights (North America) are pre-sold to a major studio or acceptable other majors or mini-majors such as Lions Gate Films.

An acceptable completion bond is secured by the producers naming the financier(s) as beneficiary. (The completion bond is a very important part of how FEFP will be able to limit their exposure to risk and/or liability)

FEFP has been able to verify sales estimates by either pre-selling some key international territories and/or obtaining offers to acquire rights in key international territories. By verifying sales estimates, FEFP is able to be assured that the aggregate value of estimated sales in the international distribution territories, coupled with the North American sale is sufficient to repay the amount financed and more importantly, provide an acceptable return on FEFP's capital.

Legal documentation pertaining to FEFP must be completed including the loan agreement, inter-party agreement (producers/distributors), completion bond issuance and all other documentation required.
