a lens through the diversity, richness and humanity of Roma communities by promoting grassroots cinema from inspiring filmmakers. It includes:a database of films, educational kits

Aims of the tool

We believe deeply in using the power of culture and films to fight for human rights. Films and images shape our imagination, our identities and our narratives. The impact of government initiatives and policies will always be limited as long as the root causes of exclusion – stereotypes and racism – are not tackled. Based on years of incredible work done by the Rolling Film Festival in Kosovo, the Roma cinema youth project provides a lens through which we can discover the diversity, richness and humanity of this community by promoting grass-roots cinema from inspiring filmmakers
