Demand to Bar

The American Film Market (AFM) may, in some instances, bar companies from attending the AFM if they have failed to comply with a judicially confirmed Independent Film & Television Alliance Arbitration Award or an AFMA Arbitration Award.

Barring is not automatic and the prevailing party in an arbitration must submit a complete Demand to Bar no less than seventy-five (75) days before the start of AFM.

For AFM 2017, the deadline to submit a complete Demand to Bar was August 18, 2017.
