IT'S ALMOST SCREENER TIME - MAKE SUREYOU'LL
screeners for feature films under awards consideration is one of the most popular
benefits of PGA membership. As
such, we want to make sure that all of our members are in a position to take
full advantage of this benefit. In order to receive DVD screeners for the 2012 awards
season, PGA members must fulfill these simple requirements:
PAY YOUR DUES:
- Unless you are current on your membership dues
you will not receive screeners.
- Several email notifications and letters were sent this summer alerting
current and delinquent members to pay their dues. If you received this notice and haven’t paid your dues, please
log in to your online account at www.producersguild.org
in order to settle your dues.
- If you become current
during the time screeners are being sent to the membership, you will begin
receiving your screeners approximately 2-3 weeks after receipt of payment. You will not retroactively receive screeners
that you may have missed due to delinquent payment.

you receive all notifications and updates concerning the screener awards season
you should ensure that you have a valid/current email address with the PGA

into your PGA online account to verify and update your email address as needed.
- In addition,
you should add the "firstname.lastname@example.org” email address suffix to your
safe list in order to ensure email notifications from the PGA are sent to your
inbox and not your trash/junk/spam folder.
- The Guild must have a signed screener
agreement on file for each member.
The agreement certifies that the member is aware of the legal
responsibilities and restrictions that govern the receipt and possession

this year. You only need to
sign this agreement once and it remains effective throughout your
- You should have already been notified via email if we do not have a
signed screener agreement on file for you.
- The mailing
lists used by the studios to send screeners are taken directly from the PGA
database. You must have a current
address listed in the PGA database in order to ensure that screeners are mailed
to the correct location.
- The screener
address you provide must:
Be a location where an individual (does
not have to be you) is physically present to sign for the delivery. FEDEX & UPS will not leave
screeners at your door and they will return any undeliverable screeners to the
sender (usually within 24 hours).
Be a STREET
address, screeners will not be delivered to P.O. boxes.
- Please log
into your PGA online account to verify and update your address as needed.
- Members are
now able to maintain more than one address in their online account. This
includes a primary address, business address and a SCREENER ADDRESS. If you haven’t already, please log into your
account through PGA website and fill in your screener address. If you do not list a screener address,
your primary address will be used as a default and will serve as your screener
address as well.
To update your screener address, follow these instructions:
1. Log in to the site with your username and password.
2. Go to any page of the site other than the home page.
3. On the right side is a gray box titled My Profile. Click on "Manage Profile” link.

you will see fields for your screener address. Complete those fields and click the "Save Changes” button at the bottom
of the page.
As you may already know, the screeners are never sent directly
from the PGA offices. All
screeners are sent to you from mailing houses selected by the studios. Although we do everything we can to
make sure you receive your screeners, occasional complications may occur. While we will help to resolve anyoversights,
the final responsibility for rectifying any issues lies with the studio.
your diligence in addressing the requirements listed above, and look forward to
enjoying this year’s rich and exciting awards season along with you.
MEMBERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR
FULLFILLING THESE REQUIREMENTS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE SCREENERS.
