During the few years I worked as deputy-director at the Nederlands Filmmuseum (now EYE), I was, beside other htings,  a  'real' conservator. For our work on preservation of old films and their presentation, my friend and colleague Hoos Blotkamp and myself got a prize at the Cinema Muto festival'  Pordenone at Pordenone.

Several articles about our work can be read in the Cinémathèque magazine, published by the Cinémathèque Française.

Also later I was member of the board of the Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique ( now: Cinematek) . For this institution I concceived that series of old film on location  , Imaginaires en Contexte. Actually the project was initially was made possible by a grant of the Koning Boudewijijn Stichting, who wanted to promote new kind of activities in museums.

The same Fund gave support to realize a project for Ostend.
