ABOUT US

The PMA is a membership organisation for agents who represent actors, writers and directors. It was set up over 60 years ago with the intention of encouraging good practice among agents by encouraging better communication between agents and better communciation from agents to the industry.

The PMA does not provide advice about finding an agent. If you are looking for an agent you will need to contact individual agencies directly. You may find our list of member agencies useful – available to download at the bottom of this page.

PMA MEETINGS AND EVENTS
