Approaching Film

This page provides a few access points to different types of Irish film - including documentaries, feature films, and news on film. Be aware that streaming film access is often procured through licensing instead of out-right purchase (meaning we have one to three years of access). 

What's on This Page

This page has a lot on it. You can use the following anchors (links down the page) to jump straight to a relevant box.

    Streaming at BC

    These are access points to a few of the platforms we work with at BC. 

    In the BC Library

    Consider using the BC catalog at to search for film about or from Ireland (sample search). Consider further limits by streaming or physical copies.

    A Selection of Titles on DVD

    You can check out a DVD player with a USB connection from the circulation desk on the 3rd floor of O'Neill.
