The Eye collection consists of roughly 55,000 films as well as the so-called 'film-related collections': photos, posters, projection equipment, film music, as well as archives of filmmakers and businesses.

The collection spans the entire history of film and is expanded with old and new titles every year, from both the Netherlands and abroad. Eye is the only institute in the Netherlands that collects and provides access to film-related collections. The film collection consists of subcollections: feature film, nonfiction, home movie, news reel, advertisements, experimental film, silent film, and films from the Dutch East Indies.
