Making a difference together.

Our Legacy

It is an independent union with its own statute submitted to the Registrar of Guilds and independent of any political party identity. It represents more than 400 professional actors, active in the field of Theater, Television, Cinema, Voice Overs and other related artistic activities. The AUC is also a proud member of the FIA ​​(The International Federation of Actors), and EuroFIA (European Group of the International Federation of Actors), a global federation of performers’ trade unions, guilds and professional associations from around the world.
