Production of Filmfabriek is up and running at full speed. Shortage of (electronical) components is a world-wide issue. However, our team managed to adapt to these challenging circumstances. Where needed we could make use of our stock supply. And in some cases we redesigned components to use similar (and backwards compatible!) alternatives. By doing so we are doing our best to help our current and new customers.


Filmfabriek is present at the digital days conference from 8-10 December 2020. A digital event, focusing on opportunities and challenges of the digitization of businesses. A short video (1 minute) shows how we implement digitation of analogue films.

We are proud to be a FIAF supporter. Their magazine ‘Journal of Film Preservation’ is recognized as one of the leading sources of research in film preservation.

FilmFabriek Pictor 2019 technical specifications

Filmfabriek is the winner of the 2019 Business Awards Baronie van Breda.

The Business Awards Baronie van Breda is an award show where entrepreneurship is celebrated. On March 26 the second edition took place. During a spectacular, evening filling program Filmfabriek & Filmkapitaal were awarded as winners of this year’s edition. The theme was ‘How smart is your business – How digital is your success?’

To support the continuous growth of Filmfabriek we moved to a bigger office. The best news for our customers are the dedicated parking lots. For us it is nice to have more space, to be able to work together with colleagues when needed, but also to work quietly when desired?. We invite everyone for a tour in the new building!
