The Asian Film Archive (AFA) develops, cares for, and interprets a collection that reflects the history, society, and the art of film amongst Asian countries and about Asians. Held in trust for the public’s use and for the purposes of AFA in pursuit of its objectives, the guiding questions below provide depositors with an idea on the scope of the AFA’s collecting policy.
The selection committee will only consider submissions related to Asia. Material that are unrelated to Asia but might otherwise be at risk of loss may be referred to relevant archiving institutions. AFA will work with other institutions to care for material on Asia that do not fall within AFA’s collecting ambit or to minimise duplication.
