Eye in Signs

We have induction loops in our cinemas and state on our website which Dutch films can be followed using the Subcatch app. Subcatch provides subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing, and describes what you can’t hear.

We also offer guided tours of our permanent presentation in Dutch Sign Language (NGT). Interpreters are present at special events, such as the Family Day and Museum Night.

Upon request, tours can also be given in International Sign (IS). Tours are not possible at present owing to the coronavirus measures.

For more information on the guided tours in sign language contact educatie@eyefilm.nl.

Eye is able to offer programmes in Dutch Sign Language thanks in part to its cooperation with Musea in Gebaren (Museums in Sign). The organisation makes art and culture accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing and is a joint initiative by Foam and Wat Telt! Since 2016, 22 deaf participants have trained as museum guides, and 15 museums now offer regular programmes in Dutch Sign Language (NGT).
