IFTC: International Council for Film, Television and Audiovisual Communication
The IFTC is a non-governmental organization in formal associate relation with UNESCO. It has an international membership composed of the most prominent federations and associations concerned with film television audiovisual communication and the new media. Created more than 50 years ago, its mission is to anticipate the cultural developments in the world of audiovisual communication, particularly with regard to new media, and to put in place actions which can ensure that culture is maintained and enhanced. Confronted by the ever increasing ascendancy of the web as the most popular form of audiovisual communication, the IFTC has delegated to its members, including CAMERA, FIPRESCI, RIAVS and SIGNIS the goal of creating a multi-language Guide to creative cinema on the web.
