programme suggestions

Eye is an exceptional event location due to its function as national film museum, its location by the IJ river and the spectacular building. There are various possibilities to make the link with film and the museum for your event. Below you will find some suggestions for expanding your programme.

word of welcome

You can open your event with a film about Eye or let us welcome your guests at the start of the plenary programme.

archive footage

Use exclusive footage from Eye Collection Center and you automatically support the preservation of our cinematographic heritage.

At the start of your event, show a silent movie from our collection as ice breaker, potentially accompanied by live music with a pianist or organist, or show images of unique collection material in a loop, which you can play during the welcome or drinks reception.

film from archive

Choose from the 40.000 films in our archive for screening, or let our curator choose a film based on a topic from your event.

guided tour

You can add a guided tour about the architecture and history of Eye (via De Gebouwengids) or through the changing exhibition (via ARTTRA). The tour lasts about an hour. The maximum group size per guide is 20 people.


You can give your guests a voucher, which allows them to visit the exhibition. On the ground floor is the Panorama, the permanent exhibition. Here you will find interactive installations and film devices that mark important moments in the history of cinema. In the large exhibition space of 1200 m² on the first floor, Eye presents a different exhibition four times a year, with unique works on the cutting edge of film and visual art.


Creative and inspiring workshops can be booked in collaboration with our Education department. Think, for example, of a workshop about photography, scriptwriting, making a short film, or make-up.


In the Eye Shop you can always find original gifts. It is also possible to surprise your guests with the beautifully designed Eye Giftcard. The credit on the card can be spent in the store or can be used for a visit to the film or exhibition.
