ARTV to lobby for rights, propose quotas, create code of ethics

RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazilian scriptwriters have formally convened a national association and elected a board.

The Assn. of Screenwriters for Television and Other Media (ARTV) mostly comprises scribes who work for top-rated broadcaster TV Globo, the biggest TV producer in the country.

The 15-member board includes some of Brazil’s best telenovela writers, including Gilberto Braga and Aguinaldo Silva.

The association plans to lobby for greater authors’ rights and to draft a code of ethics that follows that of the Writers Guild in the U.S., said board member Antonio Fontoura, a TV Globo writer, film scripter and helmer.

The ARTV will also propose quotas for Brazilian shows on local broadcast channels. In addition, the org intends to create an award show honoring local broadcasters and an award for Brazilian TV scribes, Fontoura said.
