Irish Film & Television Index 1896-2006

The Irish Film & Television Index is a constituent element of the Irish Film & TV Research Online website. Like the other areas of this site, the project is based in the School of Creative Arts, Trinity College Dublin.

The Irish Film & Television Index has documented all Irish-made cinema and major television productions as well as Irish-themed audio-visual representations produced outside of Ireland made during the period 1896 to 2006. The database, which has drawn on the archival and paper records from many of the world's leading film archives and specialist libraries, including ones in Ireland, Britain, the USA, and Australia, has almost 40,000 titles.

Researchers are able, almost instantly, to find, for example, an Irish-themed film; its cast list or production personnel; read a synopsis of its content; establish what has been written about it; compile, through a keyword search, a list of complementary titles; and then find out where a copy of the film may be found.

Trinity College Dublin does not hold copies of any of the films on IFTVRO. If it is known where a copy of a film is held this will be noted in the Copy field in the film entry.
