Europe and Latin America are the two regions in the world where collective management practices are the most developed for screenwriters and directors. While thousands of miles apart, these regions have regulatory systems for audiovisual authors that are moving in the same direction: towards more statutory remuneration rights securing a fair remuneration.

Audiovisual authors’ organisations working at regional and global level are active in promoting authors’ rights and remuneration and developing the collective management of their rights. However, there is a long way to go:  audiovisual collections only represent 6% of the total collections of CISAC members in 2021.


Moderator: Janine Lorente, expert on audiovisual authors’ rights
