Sunniva O'Flynn, Head of IFI’s Irish Film Programming was appointed curator of the IFI in early 2008. She has worked in the National Film Archives at the IFI for twenty years. The seasoned film expert studied film archiving at the National Film and Television Archive of the British Film Institute in London and later at Bundesarchiv in Koblenz, Germany.
The IFI archive, which contains over 30,000 cans of film, is an immense collection of professional and amateur productions that includes films from the turn of the century to the present day. Sunniva’s experience means she has a wide knowledge of contemporary and classic Irish film and is more than qualified to curate film packages tailored to any exhibitor or a festival’s needs.
