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. The internationally renowned collection forms the basis for EYE’s programming and other activities.
Donate films, posters or film photographs
