SAG-AFTRA Documents Documents de production

Working with SAG-AFTRA Members

The 48 Hour Film Project is proud to partner with the Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists once again to allow filmmakers to use SAG-AFTRA members in their films.

NOTE: The SAG-AFTRA waiver applies only to competitions in the US.

When deciding whether to use SAG-AFTRA members in your film, please note that your distribution options will be more limited. For any use beyond the uses granted to the 48HFP, you will need to negotiate directly with SAG-AFTRA.

For example, if you wish to submit your film to a festival, no negotiation is needed. If, however, you wish to put your film up on a third party website (e.g., YouTube, MySpace, etc.) you will be required to negotiate with SAG-AFTRA, and probably pay your actor a fee, for your film to be allowed on the site.

If you opt to use SAG-AFTRA members on your team, there is additional paperwork to complete. These documents are due at the Dropoff Event - in the official SAG-AFTRA envelope provided for you at the Kickoff Event.
