The film and video collections in the Irish Film Archive include fiction and non-fiction material made in and about Ireland by Irish and foreign producers. The collection has been acquired from public and private donors. The earliest titles in the collection date from 1897, the most recent from 2011. The collection includes feature films; documentaries; amateur material; animated material; educational films; travelogues. It provides an increasingly comprehensive resource for students of all aspects of Irish cinema.
On-site access to this collection is provided for researchers, students and programme makers. Viewing facilities are only suitable for individual viewers. There is no lending facility available.
