NOTE CONCERNING BOOKEEPING OF "PROJECT RECORDS"

When a co-producer is signing an agreement with distributors, licensees or sales agents, he/she must require them to maintain accurate and complete books and records of all financial transactions and other activities regarding the Project for the duration of agreement between him/her and Eurimages.
He/she must also require them to allow Eurimages, directly or through an auditor of its choice, to audit their books and records.

This is an example of a standard clause frequently found in distribution agreements that may be used by co-producers in order to oblige distributors, licensees or sales agents to meet the above-mentioned requirements:

The licensor and its authorised representatives (including Eurimages) shall at any time be entitled to inspect all the business records of the Distributor and/or its permitted sub-distributors in connection with the Film and, in particular, all invoices relating thereto, during normal business hours ten (10) working days after written notice is sent to the Distributor, and to make extracts, summaries and photocopies of the same.

Info for producers

  • Following the decision of the Eurimages Board of Management meeting in 2009 to carry out in 2014 a study on the functioning and results of the Fund, the Olsberg SPI company established in the United Kingdom has just published its report which you will find here. As an independent study, the contents of this document do not bind or commit in any way the Council of Europe and the Eurimages Fund. The Fund’s Board of Management will now study the recommendations proposed by the Olsberg SPI company.
