The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, Its Territories and Canada, AFL-CIO, CLC was originally chartered by the American Federation of Labor as the National Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees in 1893. Our name has evolved over the course of more than 100 years of geographic and craft expansion as well as technological advancement. The current title, adopted in 1995, more accurately reflects the full scope of our activities in the entertainment industry.

COMPASS - The Congress of Motion Picture Associations

Local 477 has spearheaded the creation of a new organization to be comprised only of the men and women who make their livelihood working in Florida-based scripted motion picture production and the Florida-based small businesses, production companies and vendors that support this industry.

COMPASS will fund and coordinate legislative efforts to increase Florida-based scripted motion picture production, which is defined as any feature film, television or commercial production with a budget substantial enough to create high-impact jobs for Florida's professional filmworkers.
