Kaohsiung Film Archive is located by the river side of Love River in a beautiful image building. It unfolds a new page to the cinematic history of Kaohsiung. For a long time, there were no social education organizations to promote cinema activities. In addition, there were few software and hardware facilities relating to the cinema in southern Taiwan. All activities held by the film industry were centered in northern Taiwan. In order to facilitate cultural development, to promote the film industry and to bring the audience in southern Taiwan more diversified visions. Kaohsiung City Government has been facilitating the establishment of Kaohsiung Film Archive since 2000. After many turns, the old building of Kaohsiung City Chinese Orchestra was chosen as the final location for Kaohsiung Film Archive. Before serving as the rehearsal venue for Kaohsiung City Chinese Orchestra, it was the campus building of Yencheng Junior High School and public service station of KMT Party. The building has been idle since the Orchestra moved to the Kaohsiung Music Center.
