Producers Guild of America Partnering With Italian Producers

PGA Producers Guild of America

The Producers Guild of America and the Producers Guild of Italy have signed an agreement to foster working relationships between U.S. and Italian producers.

The memorandum of understanding was signed Monday in Los Angeles by PGA exec director Vance Van Petten and Martha Capello, president of the Italian organization.

“The Italian film industry has a lot to learn from the American producers, to export the Italian artistic talent in the world and to strengthen the film production’s industrial process,” Capello said. “This agreement between us and the PGA is the first step towards an ever-increasing cooperation between Italy and USA.”

She also said that the alliance will work toward expanding the amount of films made in associate productions between the two countries.

Van Petten noted that Italian representatives had attended the PGA’s Produced By Conference at Warner Bros. over the weekend and added that he’s hoping to have a delegation of PGA members attend the equivalent Italian event in January in Tuscany.

The PGA has about 6,500 members.
