Our second IFI Filmmaker Playlist is curated by filmmaker and visual artist Trish McAdam. Since the production of her early shorts in the 1980s, Trish has created a vibrant and varied body of work, embracing a range of forms and subjects and retaining a singular, independent voice. We’re delighted to welcome Trish to the Irish Film Institute to select her top picks from films preserved in the IFI Irish Film Archive and presented on the IFI Archive Player. To view the other selections from Trish’s Filmmaker Playlist, click here.

As her final pick for her Filmmaker Playlist, Trish McAdam wanted to highlight the virtual exhibition on the IFI Archive Player of a range of supplementary material within the Paper Collection relating to Cathal Black’s work and career. This material encompasses his role as director, producer and activist. It includes a large number of film stills, posters, programme notes, production notes and letters, all of which are a valuable source of information to students, researchers and anyone interested in learning more about his work.
