HALO everyone!

I have been hearing this a lot lately. Films at Sundance get an MG for their film. I think it means an advance, if it does then what does the "MG" stand for?

Thanks everyone!

It stands for Minimum Guarantee, so the guaranteed minimum amount that is paid for each territory. In practical terms, it's my understanding that this is all that the filmmaker will ever get for each of the territories.
