FIAF Film Archives

The filmographies featured in the WFPP profiles list extant films held in archives around the world. Most often, these are archives associated with the Fédération Internationale des Archives du Film (FIAF). FIAF is a global network comprised of film archives and non-profit institutions, who, since 1938, have dedicated themselves to the preservation of and access to world film heritage.

The following is a list of all FIAF archives referred to in the WFPP profile filmographies. For a full list of all FIAF-associated organizations, visit the FIAF directory. Where applicable, we have included the FIAF-determined abbreviations in brackets for affiliated organizations. In some cases, these organizations are no longer affiliated with FIAF, but were at the time the Treasures from Film Archives database was created in the early 2000s (and still appear in search results today). In other cases, some organizations joined FIAF later and do not seem to have an official abbreviation. These are marked here with an asterisk (*).
