Front Row Insurance Brokers is offering Women in Film members a special discounted rate on Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance. E&O policies cover liability costs—legal fees and damages—incurred as a result of being sued for things like copyright violation or misappropriation of likeness. The program is underwritten by Chubb, one of the largest writers of E&O policies for the film industry. 


Front Row is the #1 brokerage in Canada specializing in Film and Entertainment, and one of the largest in North America. We leverage our size and experience to negotiate the best possible rates with the insurance companies, which is why we are able to offer Women in Film members this exclusive, discounted rate on E&O policies (and other production related insurance coverage). 


Front Row has offices in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. We have insured billions in production budgets, and we have over 50 specialized employees across our offices to provide you with experienced production insurance advice. Our staff arranges insurance for episodic television, feature films, TV movies, documentaries, commercials, shorts and more.


As brokers, we work for you, not the insurance company. We understand film and can provide you with the kind of empathy, support, and expertise you will only find with a specialized brokerage.
