Search Signatory Database

Overview

SAG-AFTRA offers this searchable database to all performers both SAG-AFTRA members and non-members alike who'd like to find out if a production is signatory to a SAG-AFTRA contract. If you don't find the project you're looking for here, the production may still be pending the contract approval process or may be listed with SAG-AFTRA under another name.

 In the event that a production title or signatory name is not returned in the search on this page, visitors are advised to also check with the contract department.

If you have any other questions, please contact SAG-AFTRA.

Distributors

The SAG-AFTRA Signatory Confirmation Database for Distributors is maintained to provide a resource for distributors and other buyers of rights in motion pictures. It contains SAG-AFTRA contract coverage information. THIS DATABASE IS NOT YOUR ONLY RESOURCE FOR INFORMATION ON SAG COVERAGE.

A SAG-AFTRA representative can answer questions about this database, how to use it, or what its results mean.

Notice

The SAG-AFTRA created this database for you to determine if a particular picture was produced subject to a SAG-AFTRA contract or if signatory status for that picture is pending. You will also generally learn which specific SAG-AFTRA contract applies, allowing you to determine the nature of the residuals and reporting obligations.

Please note that under Title 28 U.S.C. § 4001 "Assumption of Contractual Obligations Related to Transfers of Rights in Motion Pictures" (the "Assumption Statute"), distributors and other purchasers of rights will be responsible for Union residuals and reporting as established in SAG-AFTRA's collective bargaining agreements covering pictures that are produced under a SAG-AFTRA contract.

IF A TITLE IS LISTED IN THIS DATABASE, THE DISTRIBUTOR OR BUYER WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE CONSTRUCTIVE NOTICE THAT THE PICTURE WAS PRODUCED UNDER A SAG-AFTRA CONTRACT.

§(a)(2)(B) of the Federal Assumption Statute establishes that licensees will be deemed to have constructive and timely knowledge that a motion picture was or is being produced subject to a SAG collective bargaining agreement where SAG-AFTRA makes such information available through this web site. Under these circumstances, the applicable license agreements "shall be deemed to incorporate the assumption agreements applicable to the copyright ownership being transferred that are required by the applicable collective bargaining agreement, and the transferee shall be subject to the collective bargaining obligations under each such assumption agreement to make residuals payments and provide related notices, accruing after the effective date of the transfer and applicable to the exploitation of the rights transferred."

Although SAG-AFTRA seeks to post as complete a list of covered pictures as possible, many motion pictures, particularly those produced prior to 1982, may not yet be included in this database. Please note that you may also be deemed to have notice of Union coverage through the existence of SAG-AFTRA filings with the U.S. Copyright Office. You may also have the obligation to report and pay residuals if you are aware of facts and circumstances leading to the conclusion that a picture is covered by a SAG-AFTRA contract.
