HOST

Each year a public TV organisation hosts the conference, providing the conference location, technical facilities and staff. Sponsorship must apply within the spirit and objectives of INPUT.

INTERNATIONAL BOARD

is composed of TV professionals, who define the strategy and work all year round to make the annual conference happen. The Board appoints among its members the Presidium: President, Secretary General and Treasurer.

INTERNATIONAL ASSEMBLY

The International Assembly convenes once a year during the conference to elect members to the International Board. Delegates who have paid the fee and attended three conferences during four proceeding years qualify as Assembly Members. They are informed about their qualification by the Secretariat.

NATIONAL COORDINATORS

TV professionals around the world scout on a national level for programmes which fit the aim of the conference. Each National Coordinator or country has its own selection system. The NCs submit their national choice to the annual International Selection.

ARCHIVE

The University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona keeps copies of all programmes screened at INPUT conferences in its archive.

HUBS

Are based in Copenhagen, Montreal, Munich (Goethe-Institut), Johannesburg, Seoul and Sydney. They can provide copies of all programmes screened during the last conference for training purposes at MINI-INPUT events.

MINI-INPUT

Screenings organised by INPUT National Coordinators. There are Guidelines on how to organise a Mini-INPUT.

MODERATORS

The INPUT Conference is hosted by Moderators who are TV professionals appointed by the Board. They also put together the programme of the annual conference based on the programme submissions by the National Coordinators. They are a diverse group who come from different corners of the world and have an equally diverse range of perspectives on the television landscape.
