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.

Click here for the Corporate Film.

archive footage

Display unique footage from the Eye Collection Center. Eye's collection consists of 40.000 films and spans the entire film history. However, many old film copies are in danger of being lost through chemical decomposition and can only be saved by costly conservation. By using footage you automatically support the preservation of our cinematographic heritage. Choose an icebreaker and/or a loop:

An icebreaker is a short themed film from the collection that can be shown as a kick-off of your conference or presentation. There are different themes, click here for the list.

A loop is a compilation of unique film footage and is played in the background without sound. These atmospheric images are ideal to use for the welcome of your event, or during the break or drinks reception. Two thematic loops can be ordered. Click here for the teaser of the loop 'Amsterdam' and here for the teaser of the loop 'Flowers'.

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.
