Pink Film Days (Roze Filmdagen) //

Het Ketelhuis

The Roze Filmdagen (meaning ‘Pink Film Days’) is the largest film festival for LGBTQ films in the Netherlands.

The wide and varied selection of films includes romantic comedies, thrillers, powerful drama, provoking documentaries, and everything in between. The variety in films reflects the diversity of the community. Besides several focus programmes the festival proudly showcase numerous short films that are - just like the feature and documentary films - sparkling, provocative, urgent, and engaging.

Join the cultural community event that goes on for eleven days and meet and mingle with filmmakers and visitors who celebrate sexual diversity.
But above all enjoy one or more of the 125 films selected for you.

Virtually all screenings are in English, or have English subtitles. There are a few exceptions but the listings in the mostly bilingual printed programme (available at Het Ketelhuis, or in PDF form) , or on the Ketelhuis website, will inform you about this.

Cineville Tip of the Month //  Ava

Atrabilious Experimental Film

Festival // Filmhuis Cavia

For the fourth time in a row the Amsterdam Experimental Film Fest Atrabilious will take place in Filmhuis Cavia, Amsterdam.

During a period of two days, more than 70 short films will be shown, including unique, never shown before material specially curated for Atrabilious. A must see for any film-art lovers. This year with a focus on social-political films. Click here for more info.

Cinemasia Film Festival 

CinemAsia was founded in Amsterdam in 2003 to promote Asian cinema, give voice to the Dutch-Asian immigrant experience, as well as explore LGBTQ stories and issues with an Asian focus. The goals are to dispel stereotypes and open up the dialogue within Holland’s diverse social communities.

Over the years, the festival has become a popular event for Asian communities in The Netherlands to come together and celebrate their diverse heritage with film, food and other cultural activities.

They want to bring Asia to your doorstep, so that through their films and special events, you can feel at home with this region’s exquisite arts and culture, as well as dynamic social, economic and political trends.

While they continue to present Asian diaspora and LGBTQ films as significant components of their program, developing more panels and outreach activities each year, they also take pride in curating a tasteful mix of arthouse masterpieces, entertaining blockbusters, stylish genre films and edgy documentaries that mirror the captivating faces of Asia.
