Kaohsiung Film Archive

Kaohsiung Film Archive was established in 2002 and formally renamed in 2010. The site once served as Yancheng Junior High School’s classrooms, the KMT public service center, and later a rehearsal space for the former Kaohsiung Chinese Orchestra. It became the city’s film archive after an extensive renovation. The institution aims to become a “citizens' cinema” with regular thematic film events. Its flagship event Kaohsiung Film Festival is now one of Taiwan’s top three influential events of its kind, and the most significant film festival on southern Taiwan's social calendar.
