Stichting Oxville was founded by Carlo Dias, Aydin Dehzad and Bas Broertjes to bring cinema to Amsterdam Nieuw-West. When they met in 2016 at the Cannes film festival, they discovered that they had been missing the same thing. In almost every Amsterdam area you can go to the cinema, but not in their neighborhood, Nieuw West. Eventually, they decided to take matters into their own hands and founded Stichting Oxville. The trio has been active in distribution and production for over a decade and now created the perfect opportunity to transfer their passion for film to their own neighborhood. They are building a community of cinephiles together with the local residents. 

Stichting Oxville received ‘het Zilveren Roosje’ during the New Year’s reception 2019 at Pathé Theatres Tuschinski. They are honored with this award from Stichting Jan Nijland Zilveren Roos which encourages the three founders to realize their goal: an independent film theater in and for their hometown Amsterdam Nieuw-West.

This year, the Amsterdam exchange, the oldest stock exchange in the world, celebrates its 417th  anniversary. Euronext celebrates this special occasion together with Stichting Capital Amsterdam, the Netherlands Economic Historic  Archive (NEHA), and the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW). To celebrate this Jessica Dijkman, secretary of NEHA sounds the gong.

In Dutch exchange history, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) plays a key role. In 1602, it was the first company to go to the exchange, which makes it the founder of the first stock exchange: the Amsterdam exchange. The first initial public offering was no standalone event. Another important innovation preceded it: the invention of the modern company - the limited liability company - by this very VOC.
