About Asian Film Archive

The Archive is a non-governmental organization founded to preserve the rich film heritage of Singapore and Asian Cinema. It hopes to encourage scholarly research on film and to promote a wider critical appreciation of this art form.

The Archive is the winner of the New Non-Profit Initiative Award at the Annual National Volunteers and Philanthropy Awards 2007, which recognizes organisations for their originality, sustainability, impact and best practices. We are an affiliate with the prestigious International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and the Archive’s collection includes works by some of Asia's renowned filmmakers like Mike de Leon, Lino Brocka, Hussain Haniff and U-Wei Hajisaari.

Culturally significant films are preserved by the Archive so that our future generations can be inspired by and learn from such important cinematic works. To make our film collection more accessible to its audience, we have developed outreach programmes aimed at inspiring greater appreciation for film, its art and industry.
