Dear Sirs:

Writers & Directors Worldwide is an organization that represents creators of audiovisual, dramatic and literary works. In particular, we represent creators of films, television programs and other, similar protected works. Our organization promotes the interests of dramatic, literary and audiovisual creators, and guarantees that they obtain fair payment for the commercial use of their works. In addition, Writers & Directors Worldwide ensures that collective management organizations find themselves in a position to receive the abovementioned payment on behalf of the authors they represent.

Writers & Directors Worldwide welcomes the initiative of the Brazilian directors to create their own collective management organization DBCA (Diretores Brasileiros de Cinema e do Audiovisual) and fully supports its actions for the recognition and improvement of the rights of all creators of audiovisual works in their country.

Yours faithfully,

Yves Nilly

President of Writers & Directors Worldwide
