CIFF Digital Archive
Cork International Film Festival’s unique archive, a treasure trove of precious materials tracking the history of modern film and Cork, amassed over 68 years, has been developed in partnership with the Department of Digital Humanities at University College Cork. A unique snapshot of modern film history and the history of Cork’s development, the archive is available to view online at corkfilmfest.ucc.ie containing photographs, programme covers and posters from previous Festival editions over the last 68 years.
This project represents a collaboration between students and staff within the Department of Digital Humanities and Department of Film and Screen Media at UCC, and the Cork International Film Festival.
The launch of the digitised archive in September 2020 mounted a public call-out for further contributions of items and oral histories. Members of the public are invited to share your stories, photographs and Festival memorabilia with the archiving team by completing the contact form here.
