Verband Deutscher Drehbuchautoren e.V. (VDD)

The Screenwriters’ Guild of Germany

The Screen­wri­ters' Guild of Ger­ma­ny was es­ta­blis­hed more than 25 years ago and today re­mains as dy­na­mic and pro­gres­si­ve as ever. With its stea­di­ly in­cre­a­sing mem­bership, the Guild en­joys a well-ear­ned re­pu­ta­ti­on for its ex­per­ti­se wi­t­hin the Ger­man film in­dus­try.
Not only screen­wri­ters be­ne­fit from the Guild's ex­pe­ri­ence and know-how. Pro­du­cers, net­works and po­li­ti­ci­ans also seek its ad­vice.

One of the most im­portant ad­van­ta­ges for VDD mem­bers is the ex­pert legal ad­vice of­fe­red by Prof. Dr. Paul Her­tin, spe­cia­list for Ger­man co­py­right law.

The Guild also en­joys vital, solid re­la­ti­ons with na­tio­nal and in­ter­na­tio­nal film in­dus­try mem­bers, Ger­man film fun­ding or­ga­niza­t­i­ons, film schools and all re­le­vant film fes­ti­vals.
As co-foun­der of the Eu­ropean Screen­wri­ters As­so­cia­ti­on, (FSE)*, the VDD is de­eply com­mit­ted to im­pro­ving the con­di­ti­ons of screen­wri­ters in Eu­ro­pe and co­or­di­na­ting the ef­forts of the va­rious coun­tries to this end.
