Real film has a high worth as a medium that contains cultural and historical information and is also the most stable existing media. For the preservation of such important film data, the Korean Film Archive minimizes the risk of data loss by operating preservation warehouses in Sangam and Paju that have a constant temperature and humidity system.
Film damage occurs due to various physical and chemical influences, and its life will come to an end someday. However, to extend film life, the Korean Film Archive maintains the optimal temperature and humidity according to the characteristics of film with constant monitoring. In addition, it manages the films by periodically measuring changes in color density and contraction, which show the degree of film damage, rewinding films, and inputting chemicals. The materials that are used in the film preservation process, such as film cans and polybags, have all passed the Photographic Activity Test (PAT)
