December 6 – 10, 2018
Moviemento, Berlin, Germany
An international festival of Romani film which takes place for the second time in December 2018 in Berlin. It presents Berlin, Germany and Europe from the perspective of Romani people: Which topics are important, how do we see ourselves, how do we want to be seen?
After numberless projects which “give the Romani people the space for their own stories” we are going to turn the tables: We don’t want to be thankful for getting a voice. We want to create our own space and decide by ourselves about the content and forms of the film events.
FILM SELECTION PROCEDURE
AKE DIKHEA? Festival of Romani Film is unique for its grass rooted selection procedure – thanks to our wide network of Romani organizations, communities and individuals from all over Europe; we can discover people, topics and perspectives, which would otherwise remain undiscovered, would have only local or national impact. The procedure is highly inclusive:
Till the 15th October, we gather film proposals from different Romani communities, stakeholders or individuals. An international jury – Romani and non-Romani film professionals from Germany and several European countries– will meet from the 18th to 21st October in Berlin to discuss maximum of 50 films pre-selected by the art director Hamze Bytyci and to select about 10 short or feature-long films to be shown during the festival.
All genres and lenghts can be accepted. Only film by Romani and non-Romani filmmakers with the highest level of critical reflection on prejudices towards Romani people can be accepted.
