As a result of the measures to combat the coronavirus, Eye Filmmuseum is temporarily closed. Terrace Eye Bar Restaurant and Eye Shop are open.
Every year, Eye Filmmuseum inspects one of its three nitrate vaults in its entirety, in compliance with the requirements of the nitrate permit.
This is the thirtieth edition of the film festival Il Cinema Ritrovato in Bologna, and EXPOSED was there.
What’s EXPOSED in Italian? ‘Esposto’. Which is good to know, because this week we change our white building and view over the IJ for the red rooftops and heath of Bologna.
We found a fragment of a 16mm film reel which contains silent colour footage of Martin Luther King Jr entering Santa Rita Rehabilitation Centre.
106 years after its release in the Netherlands, and many decades after being separated from the rest of the Desmet Collection, the film Nerone (1909) is now reunited in our vaults.
