Audiovisual Producers' Association (APA) was founded in 1994. It associates producers and production companies in the sphere of feature films, film service, comercials, documentaries, animated films or tv projects. The main activity of the Association is a protection and promotion of producers' interests, dealing with professional associations, with protective authors' organisations or with bodies of the state administration. The Association also co-operates in solving legal and tax issues related to film production and it takes part in creating legislative norms in this sphere. APA has currently 83 members.
