A co-presentation with Cineworks

RSVP to the event HERE

Most film school educations focus heavily on the creative and technical sides of the process while ignoring the equally vital financial tools that one needs to understand in order to make sure things in the office run as smoothly as things on set.  As you become more serious about your filmmaking career, having a solid handle on your (company’s) financials becomes increasingly  important and complicated.  Topics we’ll cover include:

  • the pros and cons of incorporation
  • tax considerations (collecting GST)
  • accounting and bookkeeping best practices/finding an accountant
  • making sure your crew is filling out the proper paperwork/tax credits
  • deductions for self-employed individuals
  • budgeting basics
  • and more…
Instructor Sherrill Sirrs CMA:

Finding a niche market and possessing a love for the entertainment industry, Sherrill began working with independent film and television producers in 1997. Her practice is made up of primarily film-related clients and with dozens of film credits to her name, you  can pretty much ask her anything about film financing and production accounting.
