Eastern Eye

A Nova Scotia Filmography ~ 1899-1973

Eastern Eye is a bibliography of film, video and selected television production, which evidence suggests was created by, for or about Nova Scotians from 1899 to 1973. Intended as a primary research tool, Eastern Eye, brings together for the first time the broad spectrum of film and video production in Nova Scotia.

Through the use of archival description, Nova Scotia's moving images have been made more intellectually available to researchers. This availability, combined with growing use of actual archival footage, makes film and video legitimate tools in the development of a comprehensive historiography of Nova Scotia. It is hoped that this filmography will act as a catalyst for further exploration of the province's film history and inspire the repatriation of its archival film heritage.
