ROMA/GYPSY HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL
INVITATION - Calling for the Third NY annual "Roma/Gypsy Human Rights Film Festival"
submission in New York City.
October 1 to 7, 2009.
Deadline for submission is July 1, 2009
Through literally centuries of slavery, genocide, massacres, and relentless ostracizing, the Romani (Gypsy) People, who presently number around
15 million worldwide, continue to suffer unprecedented levels of violence, civilian attacks, fervent segregation, police brutality, and an appalling lack
of legitimate representation in art and media.
The Third annual NY Gypsy Film Festival taking place in October,2009. is dedicated to embracing the Roma culture and heritage of gypsies from around the world.
All screenings, Q&A's, and musical events will be held at the Bulgarian Bar, Mehanata, located at 113 Ludlow St. in the Lower East Side.
We would greatly appreciate any feedback and suggestions. Tell us via email about meaningful films dealing with issues that the Romani people are facing.
We also especially encourage any Roma/Gypsy film makers, professionals or amateurs to submit their work, considering this film festival is about the heart and substance of the issues.
Discussions with filmmakers, screenings, and events including a musical guests will be announced throughout the week.
