The Netherlands Film Festival unlocks over thirty years of festival history by putting the NFF Film Archive online. The Film Archive comprises updated descriptions and credits of over 8600 films. From ABEL to ZWARTBOEK, from HET MEISJE MET HET RODE HAAR (the very first opening film in 1981) to the program of the latest edition. From very famous to truly obscure, from features and documentaries to short films and TV productions. Film aficionados are liable to have their eyes pop out, because the NFF Film Archive contains no fewer than 15,000 stills and scores of trailers.

Film scientists, students, producers, directors, programmers, historians and of course the general public can browse through this wealth of information to their heart’s content, without running the risk of hopelessly getting lost. But although the official motto is ‘seek and ye shall find’, the NFF Film Archive also wants to surprise people by focussing on four random films with each visit.
