This T-shirt was designed for the exhibition Vive le Cinéma; an exhibition at the intersection of film and art to mark the 50th anniversary of the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the 75th anniversary of Eye Filmmuseum. Eye invited five iconic filmmakers from five continents to take part, thereby doing justice to the world cinema introduced by IFFR. Read more about the exhibition here.
The exhibition is accompanied by a program of films, talks and events, in collaboration with IFFR.
Vive le cinéma! will be on display until 5 September 2021.
Eye Film Museum
Eye is sometimes called ‘the cinematic memory of the Netherlands’. And in all modesty, that title is no exaggeration.
The Dutch national museum for film, located on Amsterdam’s IJ harbour, manages more than 54.000 films from all genres. The collection represents an outstanding sample of film history, from classics and blockbusters to cult films. But Eye does not only focus on the past: it also closely follows the latest developments in film by organizing new acquisitions, programmes, and debates. The building is open every day for anyone who is interested in film and film culture. Visitors are welcome in four cinemas, an exhibition space, a floor dedicated to educational activities, a shop, and a bar-restaurant.
Eye is internationally acclaimed for its knowledge of and expertise in the field of film restoration, research, and education. The organization has 185 employees who do their very best to make everything you would want to know about film easily accessible. For young and old, for film enthusiasts and professionals, and from constantly changing perspectives, Eye focuses on film as an art form, as entertainment, and as part of digital visual culture.
