Gateway to the world of the moving image.

The Film Institute Nederland has existed since 1946, but in 2012 this temple dedicated to the seventh art relocated to an ultramodern building, symbol of Amsterdam's dynamism. An elegant and futuristic building designed by the architects Delugan-Meissi as a "gateway to the world of the moving image."

The interior also features museum collections covering the entire history of cinema, and the museum has built a solid reputation in the field of silent and classic film restoration. EYE also devotes many theatres to retrospectives on the classics. A great way to while away an afternoon.
