EFG can provide both bank-based loans and guarantee-backed advances, secured by unsold international and domestic film rights to help fund a production budget or marketing expenses. This “GAP Financing” usually equals approximately 20% of a film's budget. We can provide timely commitments for this financing and our fees are competitive.
Today's independent motion pictures are financed with increasingly complex structures involving many components. Typically, several parties come together, each functioning within its area of commercial interest and comfort, to provide components of the requisite funding. EFG has put in place relationships with these parties from all of the various disciplines so as to assure that a quality film achieves prompt and appropriate financing.
