NFF Archive

You are now in the NFF Archive. The archive contains contains information on film, TV and interactive productions that were screened at past festival editions. The NFF does not dispose of this material. For this, please contact the producer, distributor or broadcaster. Sometimes, older films can also be found at the Eye Film Museum or the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.

What if you can’t just comb through a video collection with your fingertips and search words, but with your whole body? Thanks to computer vision, you see yourself mirrored in scenes from the collection of historical films of the EYE Filmmuseum. 

This interactive installation by Studio Louter deploys a so-called machine learning system, matching the user’s camera images with historical footage from over sixty films from the collection of EYE. From black-and-white classics and animations to short experimental films. Strike different poses, play with the composition and let yourself be surprised by your cinematographic reflection.

Thanks to EYE Filmmuseum and Creative Industries Fund NL.
