Welcome to the Irish Artists' Film Index (formerly the MExIndex)

Irish Artists' Film Index is a two-part database which makes information available on Irish-based experimental film/moving image works and promotes critical writing about this visual art genre. The works are classified as Irish because their creators are Irish, are resident in Ireland or the work relates to Irish culture and society. Works on the website are just part of a larger repository searchable by login on request.

“Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.”
