“The Nederlandsch Centraal Filmarchief was founded in 1919 with the goal of collecting films about the Netherlands for future generations. This short film calls on everyone to become a member of the archive, and to donate their negatives of any historical footage. To give an example of historical film footage, the film contains e.g. images of the Utrecht masquerade parade of 1901. In this film by Filmfabriek F.A. Nöggerath, a long procession of Utrecht students dressed in historical costume passes by. The parade was part of the annual celebrations of the University of Utrecht.”
