About the festival

De Roze Filmdagen tries to highlight as many aspects of good LGBTQ+ films as possible for a wide audience on the basis of films, documentaries and short films. This film selection generally does not reach the general public through mainstream cinemas.

Most film screenings and events traditionally take place in Het Ketelhuis and other locations on the Westergasterrein. Check out the Roze Filmdagen website for more information and the programme. More than 140 films with different themes are shown during Roze Filmdagen.
