The Independent Film Channel


Independent Film Channel 2000

The channel debuted on September 1, 1994, under the ownership of Rainbow Media, a subsidiary of Cablevision Systems Corporation; IFC originated as a spin-off of then-sibling channel Bravo, which focused at that time on a wider variety of programming than IFC, including arts-related programming. The Independent Film Channel originally operated as a commercial-free service, with films being shown without interruption. The first logo of The Independent Film Channel was created by Brian Dieck of newly formed The Diecks Group.



IFC 2001

In 2001, Independent Film Channel unveiled a new logo, while being renamed IFC, but the legal name remained as "Independent Film Channel" until 2014. This logo is still being used by its movies and theater counterparts.


Independent Film Channel (IFC) logo

In March 2010, the channel slightly refocused from a independent film channel to including more comedy programming. This restructuring strategy also included a modified logo with a bolder font with rounded corners and removing the notch on the "I" and the introduction of the current slogan "Always on. Slightly off." The new look was created by Portland-based Feel Good Anyway.
