As a gay friendly city Amsterdam is home to the ‘Roze Filmdagen’ – read: pink movie days (15 – 25 March). That’s how this promotional poster (click = full poster) came to feature Buddy and Pedro; two African pinguins that live in the Toronto Zoo and were found out to be gay. At some point the zoo decided to separate them – “what should our young visitors think of this?!” – and this caused quite a stir. Buddy and Pedro thus became a symbol for the freedom to love whoever you want. And that’s why Amsterdam based Dawn chose to make them an integral part of this year’s festival. They’re everywhere; on posters, in booklets, on t-shirts, and even part of the awards.
