What documents are required for my film’s participation in the third stage of the competition?
In order to partake in the third stage of the competition it is required to sign a contract with the organizer pertaining to the transfer of explication copyrights and film’s copyrights and related claims. Additionally, each film is to include signed credits. Documents are to be signed and sent so that PYD is sure that you have not violated the rights of any third party.
We want you to show proof that individuals who took part in your project gave consent to submit the film to PYD, so that the film can be used within the terms of the contract you have with us. If you use music files as a part of your film, all copyright owners of used music (writers, composers, producers etc.) must sign a licensing agreement with you, so that as a filmmaker you are allowed to use their work in your film.
The contest is required to sign agreements with all creators engaged in the production process as well as obtain all necessary copyrights. In the case of actors and music, the contestant is to obtain a licence for commercial use on the Internet for the period of 15 months starting with the day following the Final Gala. Plus, another licence for indefinite period for use at festivals, competitions and internet for self-promotional reasons and archiving needs of the Organizer and remaining creators.
