FIFA Films is responsible for all audiovisual content at FIFA.
FIFA Films manages, maintains and commercialises FIFA’s unique audiovisual archive. Based in Zurich and Zug, Switzerland, FIFA Films holds over 30,000 hours of reels and video tapes dating as far back as 1930, the year of the first FIFA World Cup™ in Uruguay.
It also has moving images from all FIFA competitions to date, such as the various FIFA World Cups at youth level, events for women, futsal and beach soccer. In addition, it provides unique footage of FIFA’s other events such as the various draws and galas, to name but a few.
All of this footage is carefully catalogued and logged, ensuring quick and easy access for each client’s requests. FIFA Films exclusively services business and not private requests.
FIFA Films is responsible for the production of the preliminary and final draws as well as the in-stadium giant screen entertainment. It plays an important role in organising audiovisual content for the FIFA Congress and the FIFA Ballon d’Or gala, as well as coordinating filming crews on a worldwide basis for various FIFA departmental projects.
FIFA Films produces and distributes high-quality audiovisual programming for multi-media platform distribution including weekly and monthly magazine-style programmes such as FIFA Futbol Mundial, the mascot cartoon series, 2014 Brazil Magazine and the 2014 Preview series. It also produces and distributes first-class documentaries covering past FIFA events that enable viewers to re-live the tournaments from a new perspective, such as the 2010 Behind the Scenes collection.
A new addition to the FIFA Films portfolio is the management of FIFA’s YouTube channel.
