The BTFC Presents Music Licensing for Film by The Filmmakers Legal Clinic

On Tuesday, June 7th at 4:00PM PT | 7:00PM ET, The Black TV & Film Collective and The Filmmakers Legal Clinic by Cardozo’s School Law are partnering up for a conversation on Music Licensing for Films.


Music is a necessary component in films. Whether it’s a well-known artist or your friend’s music produced in his basement, the proper licensing contracts are required. Get a better understanding of synchronization and master use agreements.

Join the BTFC in our ongoing partnership with the Filmmakers Legal Clinic at Cardozo’s School of Law as we talk about music licensing. Learn about the legal intricacies to plan ahead for one of the most important elements of filmmaking that can often turn into one of the most frustrating.

The Filmmakers Legal Clinic (FLC) at Cardozo Law, formerly known as the Indie Film Clinic, provides free transactional, intellectual property, and First Amendment legal services to visual advocates, filmmakers and video journalists working to move the social justice needle and diversify the stories that are told through media.

Cardozo Law helps filmmakers navigate contractual, legal, and business issues so that their important films can be made and distributed. To empower creators, the FLC provides individual client representation, educational services, “know your rights” trainings for community partners and pop-up legal clinics.

Client films have screened in leading U.S. and international film festivals including Cannes, Sundance, Berlinale, South by Southwest, Rotterdam, New Directors/New Films, the Tribeca Film Festival, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), the Los Angeles Film Festival, Hot Docs, DOC NYC and more.

During this chat they will break down exactly what the necessary agreements and terms are, when they should be used, and how. Don’t miss this opportunity to work smarter not harder and meet the knowledgeable team from the Filmmakers Legal Clinic.
