VFF Logo

The Verwertungsgesellschaft der Film- und Fernsehproduzenten mbH (VFF) was founded in 1979 by the Bundesverband Deutscher Fernsehproduzenten e.V., the federal association of German television producers. As a copyright management agency, the VFF is tasked with administering the royalty claims for in-house and commissioned productions in Germany. A VFF developmental fund supplies the 25,000-euro Bernd Burgemeister TV Movie Award that is presented each year.
