With the approval of Law Nr. 19.858 this past December by the Uruguayan parliament, AGADU – General Association of Uruguayan Authors begins collecting the rights of audiovisual authors as the only management society existing in their territory.
Audiovisual authors representing collective management organisations who are members of the Executive Committee of W&DW – Writers And Directors WorldWide, are continuing their work remotely in order to determine and quantify the damages the pandemic has caused for directors, writers and playwrights worldwide.
The poll was done by BVR Services GmbH of CuDOS and Ghent University, commissioned by FERA – European Federation of Cinema Directors and FSE – Federation of European Scriptwriters. The poll revealed data about remuneration and work life of European Audiovisual Authors.
