ABOUT THE HOST INSTITUTION
FILM ARCHIVE (PUBLIC ORGANIZATION)
In 1984, the National Film Archive was established as a unit under the Fine Arts Department to take charge of preserving Thailand’s rich cinematic legacy that dates back to the first years of motion pictures. In 2009, the National Film Archive received status as a public organization and became the Film Archive (Public Organization). The new status represents a higher range on the bureaucratic ladder which enables the Film Archive to be more effective in discharging its mission.
The Film Archive seeks to collect and preserve Thailand’s rich film and audiovisual heritage as well as to promote public awareness of the preservation and potential use for this heritage.
