Concept

The International Festival of Romani Film AKE DIKHEA? is a festival of films by and with Romani people, which takes place every year in Berlin since 2017. It presents the world from the perspectives of Romani people and asks the questions, how do we see ourselves and how do we want to be seen?

The 7th International Festival of Romani Film AKE DIKHEA? will open its doors on 23rd October 2023 and takes place for seven days.

This year as in previous editions of the festival we aim to promote the visibility of Romani perspectives and the counternarratives that exist in resistance to prevailing racist media discourses. This perspective is particularly urgent in times of growing fascism across Europe.

Film Selection

The International Festival of Romani Film AKE DIKHEA? stands for a unique, participatory selection process: Thanks to our worldwide network of (Romani) filmmakers, we are able to discover topics, people and perspectives that would otherwise remain hidden or only have a local or national impact. The film selection is done by the Artistic Director Hamze Bytyçi and the Co-Curator Lisa Smith.

Patron

The patron of the 7th International Festival of Romani Film AKE DIKHEA? is the Minister of State for Culture and Media Claudia Roth.
