"Sidney Olcott: Texts and Contexts"

Professor Brian McIlroy is Professor of Film Studies in the Department of Theatre and Film in the University of British Columbia. His research fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub is in collaboration with the School of Drama, Film and Music and will look at Irish-Canadian filmmaker Sidney Olcott. Though much work has been done on the Irish based films made by Olcott between 1910 and 1914, little has been written about his work as a whole. This project aims to give a much broader portrait of Olcott’s work and significance not just within an Irish context, but also within early film history.
