The Mutoscope and Biograph Collection
Funding from the European Commission’s ‘European Tribute to Film Heritage’ program allowed digitizing 50 selected films from the Eye and BFI collections.The Mutoscope and Biograph Collection is the oldest film collection held at Eye Filmmuseum. These films are all photographed with the unique large-format 68mm Mutograph camera, which provided extraordinarily high-resolution images. These one-minute time capsules from 120 years ago still convey some of the richest and sharpest images that film can achieve. Sectormanager Collections Frank Roumen takes you behind the scenes of the restoration process.
