Sign Up as a Volunteer

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.

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.
