Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques

Paris, July 17, 2015

SACD is the oldest authors’ society in the world. Created by Beaumarchais in 1777, SACD now gathers 57 000 authors in the performing arts, cinema and television sectors. Dedicated to serving authors, SACD collects and distributes royalties to members, grants licenses to users, offers support to members on social and tax matters, proposes model agreements, working spaces. SACD defends the moral and the material interests of authors and supports them throughout their professional career.

SACD is also very active in various national and international bodies such as CISAC (International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) or SAA (Society of Audiovisual Authors) to protect the authors and their works, defend their status and remuneration, and develop the network of collective management organizations representing and defending audiovisual authors (screenwriters and directors) throughout the world.

SACD welcomes the creation of a collective management organization for directors in Brazil and is looking forward the enhancement of the protection of the rights and remuneration of writers and directors of audiovisual works in this promising and vast country.
