IFFS STATUTE POINTS REGARDING MEMBERSHIP
Article 4: Membership
Members of the association are federations of film societies and non-profit cinemas in one country consisting of a representative number of film societies/cinemas based on regional, geographic, language or ethnic groupings.
The members shall be non-profit making and non-commercial and are concerned with the development of the art of the film. Their membership shall be subject to the approval of the general assembly.
In countries where no member federations of film societies exist, membership to a single film society may be granted. A single organisation will not be eligible for membership in the same country where a federative body already exists. Membership of a single organisation will be automatically dissolved after approval of a federation as the member in a same country. All full members shall pay the same membership fee and receive the same services from the association.
Article 5: Associate Membership
Non-profit Film Festivals, Film Academies, Film Institutions, Film Magazines and individual film societies will be eligible for associate membership, subject to approval by the general assembly. Associated members have no right to vote.
Article 6: Membership applications
Applications for membership of the association shall be submitted in writing, together with the constitutions of the organisations concerned, to the Executive Committee. Copies of the applications shall be provided for the subsequent General Assembly to ratify. The Executive Committee will approve the “Provisional Membership” and will recommend for permanent membership (full or associate) to the General Assembly. The provisional members will be eligible to take part at the activities of IFFS after the payment of Membership Fees. But their voting right will be activated until after the approval of the General Assembly.
Provisional Membership will be valid for the period of concern from the Executive Committee Meeting to the next immediate General Assembly.
All applicants for membership must agree with the constitution of IFFS.
Article 7: Membership termination
Membership of the association may be forfeited by resignation, non-payment of membership fees for two or more consecutive years without having notified the Executive Committee of the reason or expulsion. Resignations must be addressed to the Executive Committee. Expulsions shall be decreed by the General Assembly.
