More information


Eye rents out films from its collection to Dutch cinemas. These range from early to contemporary films, and from classics to the latest experimental productions.

The Eye distribution collection includes more than 2,000 titles and is still growing. New acquisitions mainly consist of digitally restored classics and experimental productions.

Examples include films by David Lynch and Jacques Tati, rediscovered early masterpieces, or films by experimental new filmmakers that feature surprising subject matter or techniques. The acquisitions made from 2012 onwards are only available in the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) format.
