Ten years after the founding of the Forum of Austrian Film Festivals (FÖFF), the interest group has agreed on a common fair-pay compensation target that sets targets for salaries in five categories based on IG Kultur Austria’s fair-pay table. „As a first step, the table serves primarily as a tool for festivals to draw attention to funding gaps,“ explains Benjamin Gruber FÖFF spokesperson alongside Anna Ladinig. The aim is also to bring about a greater equalization of the funding and budget levels at Austria’s film festivals, which in some cases vary considerably, as well as an increased awareness of the performance and level of work performed at festivals.
