Eye
Film Museum / Amsterdam

Eye is guardian, pioneer and guide in the world of film and the art of moving images. It houses four cinemas, a large exhibition area, three unique meeting rooms, an education space, a shop, a bar-restaurant and a series of permanent presentations. What’s more, Eye manages the Dutch film heritage in a state-of-the-art building right next to Eye, where a collection of about 50,000 films is housed, digitized and restored. Furthermore, Eye manages an extensive national educational program and is responsible for the promotion of Dutch films abroad and the Dutch submission for the Academy Awards.

By combining the past, present and future of cinema, Eye provides both young and old with an insight into the art and power of the moving image with our pay-off being: “Eye shows you a new perspective.”

The Eye Collection consists of roughly 40,000 films as well as the so-called “film-related collections”: photos, posters, projection equipment, film music, as well as archives of filmmakers and businesses.

The collection spans the entire history of film and is expanded with old and new titles every year, from both the Netherlands and abroad. Eye is the only institute in the Netherlands that collects and provides access to film-related collections.
