The EYE Film museum is housed in the iconic white building at the IJ. Everything is film in EYE. This national museum of film manages more than forty thousand movies and features every genre: a representative selection of movie history, with classics blockbusters and cult movies. It is a museum of film in the broadest sense: as entertainment, art and culture. It organises four different temporary exhibitions related to film annually. An eyecatcher is the Panorma, a 360° projection of special film clips from the collection. The building also features four theatres where both new films and classic films are shown.

(Review in Dutch)

Een vooruitstrevend museum, met veel technologische snufjes. Iedereen geïnteresseerd in (hedendaagse) intersecties tussen beeldende kunst, film, fotografie en muziek, komt hier hier goed aan zijn/haar trekken.
