FILLM is the abbreviation for Fédération Internationale des Langues et Littératures Modernes (or in English, the International Federation for Modern Languages and Literatures).

FILLM was originally founded in Oslo in 1928 as the Commission Internationale d'Histoire Littéraire Moderne and subsequently reorganized in its present form in 1951 following upon the formation of UNESCO. FILLM is affiliated upwards in the UNESCO pyramid to the International Council for Philosophy and Humanistic Studies (CIPSH - Conseil International de la Philosophie et des Sciences Humaines), one of the three UNESCO-sponsored non-governmental organizations representing the major branches of knowledge.

FILLM is the world’s ceiling organization for international language and literature associations of varying size, function, and constitution. These Member Associations focus on the major language subject-areas and fully reflect the diversity of scholarly approaches within the field, including the many different kinds of interdisciplinary approach. Some Member Associations specialize in particular theoretical or methodological approaches to language and literature, and others focus on some particular period of literary or language history, or on some particular  literary movement or grouping, or on  some particular author.

FILLM's Committee is made up of individual members of the Member Associations, who are selected so as to offer the widest possible spectrum of the different subject-areas and at the same time of the different geographical regions of the world.
