News from FSE - AGM, WGA, online meetings, new member

To the FSE member guilds

Dear colleagues in Europe,

New FSE candidate member
The FSE executive committee met online on Thursday 21 October. Board members approved the application as candidate member of ASSA (Association of Slovak Screenwriters in Audiovision), the newly created guild of screenwriters in Slovakia. The guild was founded by Ivana Sujová, screenwriter and SAA Patron, with the active participation of other dedicated screenwriters, primarily working in the television industry. It has about 40 members. The guild does not yet have a website or social networks.
You can contact Ivana at
We are looking forward to meeting her at the FSE AGM 2023!

FSE AGM 2023, Brussels, 9 and 10 November 2023
We sent the invitation by email to all the “FSE representatives” (our contacts in the FSE member guilds) on 20 September.
If you have not yet received the invitation please contact Amélie Clément at
Don’t forget to register online the soonest possible via the registration link provided in the invitation!
If there are major changes of people in your guild (board, staff) don’t forget to inform us.
