Why and for whom do you write/work today?
Feature by: Alexis A. Tioseco

Bee Thiam Tan

We have known accomplished Asian filmmakers, making important works for our community. To honour their contributions to our heritage, we preserve their works properly and make them accessible so our future generations can enjoy their cinema. We work to fill the important gap of an independent and grassroots-driven memory institution for films in Asia. To build the Asian Film Archive Collection, we invite contributions from filmmakers, collectors, companies and the public. Our emphasis is on culturally important works by Southeast Asian filmmakers. If there are films you feel are of importance and need proper preservation, contact us. If we can locate it, we will preserve it. If we can preserve it, we will make them available to this community that it is made for. All the films we collect are films we want to show people even 50, 100 years later because we believe great films can make a difference to people’s lives. We work for the future.
A graduate of the National University of Singapore, Tan Bee Thiam is the founder and Executive Director of the Asian Film Archive.
