The spectacular EYE building is an eye-catcher on the IJ harbour. EYE houses four film theatres, an exhibition gallery, an education studio, a shop and a bar-restaurant. The museum organizes four exhibitions per year, in which film is presented as the newest, most dynamic, and most multidisciplinary of all art forms.
The exhibitions are devoted to major film auteurs, the history of the avant-garde, and the border zone between film and the visual arts. EYE offers a fantastic exhibition space of more than 1,200 square metres. The exhibits place significant developments in Dutch cinematography and film art within an international context, and are always related to the EYE collection.
The museum of film possesses and presents films in all genres: a splendid journey through the history of film, from classics and premieres to box office hits and artist’s films. EYE not only reflects on the past but also follows current developments closely with new acquisitions, EYE on Art programmes and debates.
EYE is renowned the world over for its knowledge and expertise in the field of film restoration, research and education. For young and old, film lovers and professionals, EYE sheds light on film as art, as entertainment, and as part of digital image culture from ever-changing perspectives.
