The International Federation of Film Distributors’ Associations (FIAD) gathers national organisations of film distribution companies. Distributors are the lynchpin of the film value chain, helping to connect filmmakers with finance and finished films with wide-ranging audiences.


Effective distribution is vital to Europe’s diverse film culture and film industry in a digital era of abundant media supply.


FIAD's members operate in 14 countries where they cover 90 to 100 percent of the theatrical market.
