Film Production Errors & Omissions (E&O) Insurance

Film production companies face content-related media exposures that can threaten their reputation and bottom-line – from failure to obtain consent or proper license to trademark infringement of the title of the production to defamation. Chubb’s Film Production E&O Insurance has been designed to specifically address these concerns. So whether you’re a media organisation or a film producer, you’ve got the cover you need to move forward.
