Peter Konlechner (1936-2016)

It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the passing of FIAF Honorary Member Peter Konlechner, co-founder with Peter Kubelka of the Österreichisches Filmmuseum (Austrian Film Museum) in 1964. For four decades, until his retirement in 2001, Konlechner shaped film culture in Austria and beyond. He was FIAF’s Treasurer from 1970-1973, and once again a member of the FIAF Executive Committee from 1997-2001.

This news concludes a very sad year for FIAF's Honorary Members.
