Federation of Screenwriters in Europe (FSE)

The FSE is the umbrella organization representing the interests of European screenwriters’ associations. It supports its members not only through important lobbying work in Brussels, but also by means of a central information and communication platform. Its members include associations from the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Bulgaria, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Austria, and many more. The current aim of the FSE is to grow further by incorporating additional members from Eastern Europe. Among other things, the FSE awards the European Screenwriters Award for particularly noteworthy achievements in screenwriting. The inaugural winner in 2015 was Danish screenwriter Adam Price (Borgen) followed in 2017 by French screenwriter Anne Landois (Spirals).

International Affiliation of Writers Guilds (IAWG)

The International Affiliation of Writers Guilds (IAWG) was established in 1986 to address the globalization of the entertainment industry and improve the working conditions of professional film and television writers worldwide through collective action, mutual support and common representation. Its member guilds work on behalf of 50,000 writers in the areas of collective bargaining, standard contracts, credit disputes, government lobbying, and the promotion of the essential role of the writer as first creator in the filmmaking process.Through financial, professional, and collegial support, the IAWG plays a mentoring role in assisting emerging guilds in their development and helps to build professional working relationships among more established organizations.
