AVACI elected new authorities: Klemen Dvornik was appointed as President

During the last International Congress of AVACI, held from May 2 to May 5, 2023, in the city of Río de Janeiro, Brazil, the International Confederation of Audiovisual Authors elected its new authorities to take office for the period 2023-2025.

The four continents, which are members of AVACI, are represented by the new authorities who, throughout these two years of work, will put into operation the member fees and register the statutes by the first election to be held in 2025.

The brand-new President of AVACI, the Slovenian audiovisual director and screenwriter, Klemen Dvornik (AIPA), appreciated the “vote of confidence” to chair the entity and asserted that among the “priorities for the next two years we need, first of all, to strengthen the structure of the organization we are creating; secondly, to politically support the organizations and their members in order to empower them in their struggle to improve the legal basis of the legislation of each of their countries, as well as to reinforce the collection of each institution concerning the rights of authors; thirdly, to empower emerging societies around the world and, on the other hand, to recognize the important issues for our community, such as the gender equity agenda”.
