During the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Het Ketelhuis, director Jean van de Velde gave the first National Film Speech, in which he highlighted the flourishing of the Dutch film industry. He painted a picture of the future in which cinema attendance and the share of Dutch films would have increased significantly, with a record number of 51% Dutch films in cinemas and more than 50 million visitors. Van de Velde discussed the positive developments, including the introduction of 'media literacy' as a compulsory subject, the establishment of the Dutch Film and Game Academy, and cultural service for filmmakers. These initiatives are all said to have contributed to the successful rise of Dutch film, culminating in prizes such as Oscars and the Silver Bear.
