Archive at Lunchtime

7th January 2010 by Maura McHugh

A new series of lunchtime screenings of short films from the IFI Irish Film Archive started this week.

The programme will provide new access to the vast collection of its shorter films – professional and amateur, educational and informational, travelogues, sports films and dramas – all of which provide a unique insight into Ireland’s social, cultural and film history.

All programmes are free, and under half an hour, so it’s a perfect way to spend a lunch hour. January’s films were made by members of the Guinness Film Society with producer Mike Lawlor and each offers a fascinating portrait of Dublin life in the ’70s.

Information about the dates and times of the screenings are on the web site.
