Rolling Film Festival
The Rolling Film Festival brings film by and about Roma from around the world to Kosovo for a multi-day festival including also local art and talent. Following the 2009, and 2011 editions, the third edition was celebrated in December 2012. The festival has become Kosovo’s most appreciated event for introducing other Kosovo communities to the Roma community, for supporting Romani artistic expression, and for providing a festive, dynamic and transformative venue for combating stereotypes and promoting positive inter-ethnic relations.

“The Roma Dream”. This is what were we talking about: Roma identity, diversity… because different people are participating to this workshop, Germans, French, Roma, Non-Roma and we wanted to show that the diversity can be one. Is it possible? It’s possible. We are an example: we have different cultures here, but actually we all are one here.”
