The Mowelfund Resource and Information Center comprises the Audiovisual Archive, Dr. Guillermo de Vega Memorial Library (Mowelfund Library), and the Pambansang Museo ng Pelikula (PMP). It aims to collect, keep and preserve film artifacts and records on historical and current events in the movie industry. It aims to serve as a regular source of information and materials to researchers, i.e. students, TV and film production staffers, journalists, media writers, and film enthusiasts.
The Mowelfund Audiovisual Archive (MAVA) specializes in collecting and preserving audiovisual materials such as Film (35mm, 16mm and super-8); Video/Audio tapes (U-matic, VHS, Betamax, Video-8, Mini-DV, Betacam, Cassette tapes, etc.); and Optical Discs (CD, VCD and DVD).
It has the largest collection of short films and several film classics. It currently holds more than five hundred titles of film/video works of students and
independent filmmakers. Among its top priorities is the restoration of Filipino film classics.
