    Filmmuseum Amsterdam

    Situated in the fabulous Vondelpark, the Filmmuseum Amsterdam is the national centre for cinematography in the Netherlands. In its collection are over 35,000 film titles which, together, add up to more than 60,000,000 metres of film. The collection also comprises photos, posters, newspaper clippings, magazines and many other items relating to film history.
    The international collection spans the complete history of cinematography from 1898 until today. In addition to this the collection is expanding with new film titles being added every year.

    The main goal of the Filmmuseum is to encourage and promote film culture in the Netherlands. By collecting, restoring and screening the many ‘film treasures of the past’ as well as by presenting new films in the art- house genre we aim to achieve this goal.

    Distribution & Production
    Through its distribution branch the Filmmuseum enables Dutch cinemas throughout the country to screen both classics and contemporary art house films. The Filmmuseum also has its own video and DVD label through which it releases both archive films and contemporary art house films.

    The Filmmuseum is also involved in production and produces so-called found footage films, historical programmes, theatrical shows and publications on film history. Some Dutch film productions are also sponsored by the Filmmuseum.

    Locations & Programmes
    The Filmmuseum is spread across two venues and houses five theatres: two in the Film-museum itself and three in Filmmuseum Cine-rama. There are up to fourteen daily screenings. We offer a wide selection of films ranging from theme programmes, classics, archive films, cult films to special children’s programmes. The emphasis is placed on unique films with a film-historical significance and on contemporary cinema. Special theatrical shows combine silent films with theatre, music and entertainment. In September 2003 the museum opened a exhibition space in which it displays program- related items
