One of the biggest hangups for filmmakers can be legal fears and woes.
You want to cover film legalities properly but, no matter the size of your budget, it can still be tough to find legal counsel. There are often more questions than answers. Fears and what ifs can be crippling.
Releases are a necessary part of filmmaking, though. Understanding what they mean and how they affect you (and your work) can be tricky.
This is why the TriFilm Society is co-hosting a workshop titled Understanding Releases for Filmmakers from 4:00-6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 22nd. We’ve partnered with Triangle ArtWorks and Shelia A. Huggins to bring you an affordable and entertaining way to learn about release forms.
Tickets are only $10. Click here or on the button below to register now.
At the workshop you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Learn which releases (such as crowd, depiction, location, artwork, photo, etc.) you need for your film
- Learn which provisions in your release matter the most and how those provisions affect the development of your film
- Meet filmmakers and share experiences regarding use of releases in your work
- Meet and talk with lawyers from Law + ArtWorks
- Drink craft beer and other beverages
Shelia A. Huggins, an arts and entertainment attorney will lead the workshop discussion. It will focus on eight releases filmmakers need to have on hand. Attendees are invited to bring sample releases to share with the group for discussion.
Law + ArtWorks is a group of lawyers who care about the Triangle’s arts community and are working together, through ArtWorks platform, to determine the unmet legal needs of this community and to determine ways to serve these needs.

What can you expect at a social? Socials are a great way to step away from your computers and cameras to spend time with the area’s top film and video pros.
You can expect a warm welcome when you walk through the door. You’ll have a name tag so people know who your name. Excellent food and drinks will be provided.
There will also be a few short announcements about the TriFilm Society and how it benefits you. If you have something to share with the community, we welcome you to submit it in advance. Job openings, screenings, and educational opportunities are great examples.
We create a casual, comfortable atmosphere for professional networking unlike any other.

The next TriFilm Society social will be held on Tuesday, October 6th, starting at 5:30 PM. We look forward to seeing you there!
Last week we shared details about how socials are changing. (Read it here if you missed it). The most notable change is that the five-year run of free socials is coming to a close as the TriFilm Society evolves once again. As a result, tickets to the social on October 6th are $25 for guests and $10 for Charter Members.
Charter Members always receive steep discounts on socials, and have an opportunity to attend absolutely free in October. We’ll share more details about it with Charter Members this week via email.
We have incredibly exciting things planned for the next social. Register now to surround yourself with some of the most professional and hard-working people in the film community in Raleigh, Durham, and surrounding areas in North Carolina.
You have given us such great feedback over the years. We’re pouring all of your insights into the next iteration of the TriFilm Society. Where we go from here is incredibly exciting.
At the social, we’ll go into more details about how things are changing and what it means for you!
