Sign Up as a Volunteer
Our volunteers are vital to the realization of our mission. We hope that by offering you interesting job possibilities and the chance to perform genuine needed services, your connection with and commitment to the Archive will grow.
At the Asian Film Archive, we have met volunteers who inspire us. They come from diverse backgrounds and are contributing their vast knowledge and skills as well as their time, concern and care for our film heritage. The Archive is a wonderful environment in which you too can give back to the community.
The Archive regards its volunteers in a similar way to salaried employees: prospective candidates for a volunteer post will be interviewed and, once on board, there will be regular performance monitoring and, depending on the position, opportunities for training.
