FERA Calls for Remuneration for Filmmakers by Global Streamers


    BRUSSELS: FERA, the Federation of European Screen Directors, issued a statement on 15 February 2021 calling for global steamers to commit to transparency and remunerations.

    The public statement calls for global streaming platforms to commit to three principals: transparency on viewership figures; remuneration for the use of works by filmmakers; and the definition of fair and proportionate remunerations models.

    Poland has developed a levy on streaming platforms which has been in effect since July 2020, with the levy going to the Polish Film Institute.
