«SWISSPERFORM takes on an important social task by protecting the rights of actors and speakers. Having a reliable partner on the complex media market that also operates internationally is an enormous relief and would be impossible to manage on one's own. In addition to this direct economic benefit, I also particularly appreciate SWISSPERFORM's support of individual colleagues for special achievements through the TV awards. I am grateful for the work of SWISSPERFORM.»Rachel Braunschweig

«Swiss series or films are not only broadcasted once and that's it. SWISSPERFORM monitors and researches the various air dates and respective TV broadcasters and thus claims my remuneration for the second uses of my projects. This work is an essential and valuable support for my artistic work.»Julian Koechlin
