FIAF Secretariat

The FIAF secretariat's team in November 2019

The Secretariat hosts the administrative staff of the Federation, led by the Senior Administrator, as well as the two members of staff working on FIAF’s Periodicals Indexing Project (P.I.P.). Initially located in Paris and hosted by the Cinémathèque française from 1947 to 1960, the FIAF Secretariat moved to Brussels in 1968 and was for a time hosted by the Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique. It is currently located at Rue Blanche 42, 1060 Brussels.

The Senior Administrator is appointed by the Executive Committee and is responsible to it. Under the supervision of the Secretary-General, he acts in the capacity of (a) permanent and responsible manager of the day-to-day administration and financial management of the Federation; (b) chief of the administrative personnel of the Secretariat and other employees of the Federation; (c) permanent legal representative of the Federation in the country of residence of the Secretariat.
