In addition to prints, the Archive has also acquired a large volume of hard-to-find film-related materials. They are in fact cultural artefacts that offer valuable information about the films, the industry and society at large.

Our collection includes stills, handbills, scripts, posters, records, contracts and items donated by stars, such as trophies from Chow Yun-fat, Josephine Siao and Johnnie To, as well as props and weapons used by Kwan Tak-hing in his films.
