Event Details

In this seminar, Jeremy Warning, Lawyer and Partner at Mathews Dinsdale, will address the "Myth of Cinematic Immunity". It is a common belief that laws and regulations can be sidestepped because "it needed to happen for the shot". Mr. Warning will examine the issues of who has potential liability in those circumstances, how to manage risk and liability through due diligence, and how laws are enforced in the Film/Television sector. A discussion of the Sarah Jones/Midnight Rider incident will also be included, examining that scenario if that tragic event had happened in Canada.
