Filmmagie, for children aged 6 and over, takes place every Sunday afternoon and during school holidays in Eye. After watching a few beautiful short films, you will get to work creatively in a short workshop. By watching and making together you dive into the magic of film.

Filmmagie [Film Magic] is watching and making. Discover the magic of cinema with short animations from Eye’s extensive collection. After watching the film, there is a creative activity for the children, in which they get to work with the movement of images.

Discover with a flip book how to turn a still image into a moving scene, make your own film on celluloid strips or move together using the films as inspiration. The films and the workshop vary and are listed with the film screening. There are extra Film Magic performances during the school holidays.

Filmmagie

Children need a supervisor. Unfortunately, it is not possible to celebrate children's parties at Filmmagie.

Every third Sunday of the month, a Dutch Sign Language interpreter is present during Filmmagie.

Cinemini

Eye’s finest and most intimate film theatre is a great place for children aged 2 to 6 to experience their first cinema visit. Every Sunday morning, Eye’s Cinemini opens especially for preschoolers and their (grand)parents, where children are treated to a film, followed by experiments with light and shadow in small play tents.
