John Oliver

John joined the BFI in 1996 and has worked in the Archive, initially as a cataloguer, ever since. Areas of interest include British cinema from the 1930s to the 1960s (with particular interests in the 1930s, wartime cinema and comedy); the multi-lingual mode of production in 1930s international cinema; the development of widescreen systems in the 1950s; Italian cinema; and the science fiction, Western and musical genres.

He has worked on science fiction festivals in Trieste and Genoa, and published work includes an essay on the Aldwych farces for the book The Cinema of Britain and Ireland (Columbia, 2005) and numerous contributions to the reference works The Encyclopedia of British Film (BFI, 2003-) and Dizionario dei registi (Einaudi, 2005).
