RIGHTS PAYMENTS

SCREEN CRAFT RIGHTS is a Collecting society that has been established to ensure that the Crafts rightsholders of British productions benefit wherever possible.

In some European countries authors (rightsholders) of films and television programmes are entitled to payment when their work is copied from broadcast channels or the internet, rented or used for educational purposes. The authors of a production (or a specific element of a production) are usually recognised as being the writer, director and composer but in some countries it can also include the cinematographer, the editor and designers – the craft rightsholders.

SCREEN CRAFT RIGHTS is a not-for-profit organisation, jointly established by BECTU, BSC, GBCT and GBFTE to collect and distribute these payments to UK Cinematographers, Production/Costume Designers and Editors.
