Eye / Amsterdam Film Institute

Enjoy the beautiful architecture, the exhibitions, one of the four cinemas and the stunning view from the EYE restaurant.

EYE’s collection spans the entirety of film history: from silent films dating back to the start of cinema (at the end of the 19th century) to the newest digital productions. Every year the collection expands as more films – Dutch and foreign, new and old – are added.

What’s more, EYE is the only institute in the Netherlands that collects and makes available film-related ephemera: photographs, posters, soundtracks, equipment and filmmakers’ paper archives.
