Iris Industry: Music rights, licensing, and contracts for film & TV

Music is a crucial part of film & TV but music rights and licences can be complex. Unpack them in this informative session

Music is a crucial part of the films and TV programmes that we love, but the world of music rights and licences can be a complex one for producers and musicians alike. This panel will discuss issues around incorporating music into productions from both points of view, whether it’s a specific commission and recording or use of existing tracks. Useful for composers, bands and artists, producers, and filmmakers, the session will also highlight how union agreements and services can help make the process easier.
