Historical Background of the Roze Filmdagen Amsterdam LGBTQ+ Film Festival: The movie festival started in 1996 at two venues in Amsterdam: a little underground theater, called Cavia and Cinema Rialto. The first edition was in June at Gay Pride Festival Amsterdam and took four days. With the years, the festival grew bigger and moved to Cinema de Balie and the Film Museum (currently located at EYE). The festival was rescheduled to November to end up in March. Since 2014 Cinema Het Ketelhuis is the main venue of the Roze Filmdagen Amsterdam LGBTQ+ Film Festival. Knowing about this history, you will understand better, why Roze Filmdagen Amsterdam LGBTQ+ Film Festival 2020 is now celebrating its 23rd edition, although it started already 25 years ago.
