The magic of 100 years of 16mm film
21 November — 6 December 2023
The portable 16mm cameras allowed filmmakers to take to the streets and improvise. Filmmaking became much more accessible to documentary makers and artists.
Eye Filmmuseum’s Sweet 16 programme celebrates 100 years of the revolutionary 16mm film format.
We are showing spaghetti Westerns on 16mm, classics by Ed van der Elsken and Johan van der Keuken and experimental queer films by Kenneth Anger. Christopher Harris will be our Special Guest. From 21 through 27 November, we will even have rattling 16mm projectors in our cinemas – it just isn’t possible to get any closer to the beauty of the coarse grain.
