Be Involved

At the Asian Film Archive, we have met volunteers who inspire us. They come from diverse backgrounds and contribute their knowledge and skills to help care for our film heritage. We are always looking for new volunteers who would like to join us in giving back to the community. 

Volunteer applicants are regarded as highly as full-time employees. Prospective volunteer candidates will be interviewed and once selected, will receive training and opportunities to try a variety of jobs, depending on skills and interest. To thank volunteers for their efforts, the Archive offers them a chance to catch films and to attend talks, workshops, and tours whenever available.

In the current pandemic circumstances, the Archive has adopted safe-distancing measures  and face-to-face activities have been kept to a minimum. As such, only select in-person volunteer opportunities are available. Listed below are some of the volunteer opportunities that you can consider:

Make a Gift

Thank you for choosing to make a gift to the Asian Film Archive, a registered charity and an institution of public character.

We will use your support to save films from getting lost, damaged or misplaced, so more people will still get the chance to see them.

The Archive is an Institution of Public Character (IPC). Donations to the Archive enjoy tax deduction. For every $1 that our donors give, IRAS will deem that our donors have donated $2.50 to a charitable cause and give you tax credit for that amount.

Your tax deductible gift enables the Asian Film Archive to preserve our film heritage that future generations will connect with and enjoy.

You may donate either by cheque or credit card. Cheques should be made payable to ASIAN FILM ARCHIVE.
