Representing its members in key international fora: as an NGO, FIA enjoys permanent consultative and participatory status with the World Intellectual Property organisation (WIPO); the International Labour Organisation (ILO); UNESCO, the OIF (Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie), the Council of Europe and the European Audiovisual Observatory.


FIA advocates worldwide to bring the voice of the performer to policy debates not just upon intellectual property rights but upon working conditions such as employment standards, safety, diversity and equality as well as artistic freedom. It promotes networks between members and strives to secure policies that will ensure continued for cultural commitment to the profession, enhance sustainable funding mechanisms for growth and jobs in the audiovisual and live performance sector.


In order to try and rebalance the interests of industry and the talent upon which industry depends the International Federation of Actors (FIA) together with three other organisations representing performers in Europe: AEPO-ARTIS (http://www.aepo-artis.org ), the International Federation of Musicians (FIM) and the International Artists’ Organisation (IAO) are carrying out a campaign to introduce into European legislation a right to remuneration for performers, collected from downloading and streaming platforms and managed by performers’ collective management organisations.
