Who are we?

AMMAC, the Catalan Audiovisual Editors Association, emerges from the need to create a space that represents the collective of audiovisual editors of Catalonia, spreading its work, put it in value, defend its rights and work for parity in the sector.

AMMAC is a non-profit association that brings together the editors resident in Catalonia from different professional sectors: fiction, documentary, television, advertising and corporate video, as well as assistant editors.

It was founded in 2018 from the concerns of a small group of editors that considered the needs for representation and collective action within the profession. After a first meeting where more than 100 professional editors attended, working commissions were created, dozens of people registered in what would become the association in the following months.
