The Let's Buy Your Films Festival is unique. This is not just an opportunity to express yourself, show your work to a wide audience and find your way to success. For beginners, this is the only real opportunity to financially realize their film.
The works included in the short-list of the festival are deposited for the protection of copyright and related rights, after which they are professionally promoted to Russian-language European channels and cable networks.
The organizer of the festival, the League of St. Petersburg Producers, works only with legal operators in the European Union, which determines the legal protection of our partners. Any use of your films will always occur only when the operator concludes a license agreement with you personally as the copyright holder. The license specifies the rights to be transferred, the method and period of use of the film, the size, timing, and procedure for paying royalties.
Unlike other festivals, we help you sell your film in the most efficient way, and let you know what needs to be corrected or revised so that your film is bought as early as possible and at the highest possible cost.
