For the purposes of registering a work with a PRO, what is the difference between a "TV FILM" and a "MOTION PICTURE" in this age of direct-to-video low-budget productions? (Or even direct-to-video BIG-budget productions, like Spielberg.) The BMI registration form has these check boxes...

On the back of the form they give these longer explanations: "Full length feature motion picture" and "Film made for TV". My guess is that something shot on video and going direct to DVD, with possible TV broadcasts, is a "TV FILM". What say you?

Btw, the other choices are "BROADWAY SHOW", "OFF-BROADWAY SHOW", and "INFOMERCIAL". I wonder why they make these distinctions.
