The FIAF Congress
The international Film archival community has the opportunity to meet every year at the FIAF Congress. This is the occasion for FIAF archivists and external participants to share their experiences and to exchange their information. The FIAF Congress is held every year in a different country, and consists of scientific, cultural, legal and administrative programs, such as symposia, workshops, open forum discussions, regional meetings, presentation of cinema and moving image programs, restoration projects, and the General Assembly.
Every two years, the FIAF General Assembly elects an Executive Committee of 13 members, who act as the executives of the Federation for their term of office, assisted by a permanent Senior employee, who is in charge of the FIAF Secretariat.
The FIAF Congresses are prepared long time in advance. Affiliates interested in hosting a Congress are invited to study carefully the Guide for Affiliates Hosting FIAF Congresses.
