In 2009, the Harvard Film Archive received a collection of film stills, pressbooks, lobby cards, books, and one-sheet movie posters relating to the work and representation of Asians and Asian Americans in American film.  This collection, the Asian American Film Ephemera Collection, has been fully processed and is ready for research use.

A full finding aid is available here.

This concise collection consists of 5 boxes of ephemeral materials and 28 one-sheet movie posters representing over 170 films made primarily in the United States, but also in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Italy, and France, covering the period from 1917-2002.
