What We Do
We work with the Ministry of Communications, the Ministry of Culture, the Knesset committees and regulatory bodies, in order to increase budgets of original scripted work and to create additional employment opportunities for screenwriters within the ever-widening range of Israeli and international media platforms.
We are promoting proper norms of employment, providing copyright protection and legal advice for screenwriters.
In addition, we strive to improve the status and representation of screenwriters in film festivals and trade publications, encouraging diversity and freedom of expression.
All members are eligible for legal advice regarding all contractual matters or cases involving intellectual property and professional representation.
