Our storyBefore ALTA was created, film and audiovisual technicians were represented by the Association of Technicians and Actors/rices in Cinema asbl (ATAC). At this time, the Luxembourgish film industry was still in its infancy and lacked a funding system for audiovisual projects as well as the ‘intermittence du spectacle’. When multiple film projects were cancelled between 2005 and 2008, film technicians in Luxembourg realized the specific challenges and needs of their working conditions and decided to raise their concerns with producers and institutions as a community. In this spirit, ALTA was founded in 2008 by 19 of those technicians. Today, we are proud to represent more than 100 members.
