Thirty movies made by and for Roma will be part of the new edition of the Rolling Film Festival starting from December 12 to 16 in Pristina.

Movies will be screened in five locations such as Kino ABC-1, National Theatre, Te Dudi, Dit’ e Nat’ and Multimedia Centre.

Organisers said that if anyone misses first day, they can watch the movie in another location.

“Those not having the opportunity to watch a movie in the first day, they can go to another location and watch it because we rebroadcast the movies from the day before,” said Milica Milovic, project coordinator.

Organisers said that the main aim of the festival is raising the awareness of the society towards the Roma culture and tradition, through the movies.

Movies are selected to demonstrate the diversity, richness and human elements that tell the story of Roma in the world.

In the last two years, the Rolling Film Festival became the most important event in Kosovo that presents the Roma community.

Rolling is realised by Romawood and Balkan Sunflowers Kosovo. Different directors will participate in this festival such as Valon Ymeri, Denis Mustafa and Sami Mustafa.

“We are trying to contribute through ‘Rolling Film Festival' to Kosovo’s artistic scene and express our problems,” said Bajram Kinolli, Kafu, a Roma artist.
