The Gay and Lesbian Film Festival Pink Apple was founded in 1997 by a handful of film enthusiasts in Frauenfeld in the Canton of Thurgau. The opening of Pink Apple took place in Zurich for the first time in 2003. In the meantime, Pink Apple has become the largest lesbian and gay film festival in Switzerland.
In 2011 63 films from 18 different countries were shown in 85 performances and over 30 film makers presented their work at the festival. In early days, about 500 admissions were sold, but in 2011 more than ten times as many individuals visited both festivals in Zurich and Frauenfeld — over 7500.
The Competition consists of short film, feature film and documentary programmes. Pink Apple also transacts special events, such as lectures, discussions, talks and concerts.
