IFC History

The International Feature Conference organized once a year in a different country each time.

It all started in 1974 in Berlin under the benign dictatorship of Peter Leonard Braun (photo), a German feature-maker.

Read statement P.L. Braun: ‘The Genesis’ 1999, March 29

He set up what he liked to call ‘an annual conference of shoemakers’, a forum for discussing each other’s work with sometimes ruthless honesty.
The number of participants grew steadily up to the maximum of 70, and in the recent years it has been difficult to keep the number that low.

In 1995 Leo handed over power to an EBU committee chaired by Belgium’s Edwin Brys.
