  • After screening at Roze Filmdagen, I've had other European festivals approach me to screen at their festivals as well because they saw it there. Very nice to know that our film is being seen even in an online showcase!

    Such an honor to be featured on Roze Film dagen! When we made VLINDERS, roze filmdagen was one of our main goals to achieve. We are so happy that we got featured. On top of that we were selected as best Dutch film, which results in a nomination for The Iris prize in Cardiff. Thank you Roze filmdagen!
