Event Details presents!:

Whorehouse Cinema, a sex worker film & arts festival between 31 March and April 2nd 2023@Cinetol, Amsterdam. We are a collective consisting of (former) sex workers, feminists, queer and trans people from all different walks of life and backgrounds and operate under the name of presents! We organise events in The Netherlands on the topic of sex work and aim to destigmatise sex work trough more nuanced and diverse representation. Our focus is on perspectives which stay away from the usual, narrow ideas and stereotypes of what it means to be a sex worker and stories that are intersectional. We prioritise works made with, by and for with sex worker communities. Welcome at whorehouse cinema!
