About VOFTP

Flemish Independent Film & Television Producers

What is VOFTP?

VOFTP’s goal is to promote the economic and commercial interests of Flemish independent film and television producers. We realize this objective by informing our members about legal and business developments in the audiovisual sector and involving them wherever necessary.

VOFTP is the spokes-organisation for the Flemish independent television and movie production sector to a wide range of players in the field such as broadcasters, the press, stakeholders in the media sector, research institutions, government institutions, advisory bodies and employers and employee organizations.  We put our best efforts into making these participants aware of the importance and economic strength of our members and their challenges in an ever-evolving audiovisual ecosystem.

Last, but not least, we are a  think tank which vigorously discusses all current affairs regarding the sector and we offer our members a forum to arrive at a mutual consensus to collectively defend this point of view. We draft legal guidelines and standard agreements for our members and collect economic statistics about the sector.

How does VOFTP work?

VOFTP is a non-profit organization, with several internal bodies that ensure a smooth day-to-day operation:

  • The VOFTP Managing Director is responsible for the daily administration and management.

  • The General Meeting assembles all its members for various statutory duties that must be performed to ensure that VOFTP is governed effectively and responsibly.
