Filmmaking lives from a creative collaboration and an intensive dovetailing of different departments and their actors. VdFS manages fiduciary and collectively the copyrights and neighbouring rights of the professional groups direction, camera, film editing, stage design, costume design and acting, distributes royalties and advises its members on issues of (film) copyright.
