In his introduction to the 2006  SEAPAVAA publication Lost Films of Asia Nick Deocampo wrote:

In a little over a hundred years, how many films have already been lost? Countless.
How many more will be lost? Innumerable.
How many have been saved?   Who’s counting?

This resource is an effort to attempt to address, at least in part, the last two questions.
It relies on your contributions to become even more reliable.
