APASER is supported internationally by AVACI, the world’s leading network of authors’ societies, and by its creators council that campaigns internationally for audiovisual rights, Writers & Directors Worldwide. This network extends to 123 countries and via its 239 society members, represents the interests of more than four million creators.
The collaboration with APASER is an essential component of this international representation. It follows a similar model to that developed in Latin America with the formation of the Alianza de Directores Audiovisuales Latinoamericanos (ADAL). This has been instrumental in aligning the efforts of national authors’ societies within the region, and leveraging them with international support from AVACI and Writers & Directors Worldwide to successfully lobby governments.
As part of the “Audiovisual Campaign”, the laws of Chile and Colombia have already been rewritten to include measures that better protect the rights of audiovisual authors, with other countries expected to follow.
