Eye Filmmuseum is a centre in Amsterdam dedicated to cinematography. The building is located opposite Central Station, on the north bank of the river IJ, in the district Overhoeks (Amsterdam North). The building was designed by the Austrian architects Roman Delugan and Elke Delugan-Meissl and opened in early 2012.
Eye has four cinemas and an exhibition hall of 1,200 m². There is room for educational activities, a film lab, a shop and a café-restaurant with terrace. Eye participates in the Cineville partnership.
Eye’s objective is to preserve the film heritage for future generations, both Dutch films and foreign films screened in the Netherlands. The museum wants to promote a lively film culture in the Netherlands.
There are regular thematic programmes in which the history of film and contemporary cinematographic developments are discussed. The museum also organises annual open-air screenings, festivals, theatrical family shows and retrospectives. It acts as a distributor of classics and contemporary idiosyncratic films.
