Group Docent Service

Guided Tours

The Archive presents varied film-related thematic exhibitions with docent service throughout the year.


All registered primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, post-secondary institutions, universities, local-registered charities and non-profit-making organisations are eligible to apply for our Group Docent Service. In the case of registered charitable organizations and non-profit-making organizations, applicants should submit copies of supporting documents identifying the charitable or non-profit-making nature of the organization. (Constitution or Memorandum and Articles of Association of the organization, which indicates that members do not take any share of the profits nor any share of the assets upon dissolution, should be submitted together with the application.)

The number of visitors in each group is limited to thirty, each group to be accompanied by two teachers or representatives from the visiting organisation.  Because of limited space in the Exhibition Hall, the Archive may divide visitors into smaller groups and may arrange for them to walk around the Archive in a different time slots.


A tour generally takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes, covering the thematic exhibitions and Resource Centre. Group docent service is not available on Tuesdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.
