PROJECT

Field(s)
A federation bringing all the actors from the artbook chain.

Description
FILAF organizes annually in Perpignan (South of France) the International of Art book and Film Festival and FILAF Artbook Fair. The seventh edition of the festival will take place from June 19, to 25, 2017. The fair will be held during the last three days of the festival, from June 23, to 25, 2017.
With its experience, FILAF wants to develop a new European project : a federation bringing together all the actors in the art book chain.
Publishers, art centers, museums and galleries publish artbooks and work with printers, bookbinders and graphic designers. So there is an important market not federated. The objective of this federation is to bring quality criteria by encouraging its members to work together and develop more fluidity between them. It also aims to promote trilingualism in order to develop European interactions by circumventing the dominant languages.
The federation will be based on an internet platform allowing the digital convergence with a reserved area for professionals (access via login and password). This platform will allow its members to broadcast their announcements and calls for projects, for example.It will also have advisory competence and will issue a label only granted under ecological conditions. For example, only printers using recycled paper will be able to obtain this label. The eco-responsible approach of the actors is thus an indispensable element to obtain a labeling by the federation.
