7th International Festival of Romani Film

AKE DIKHEA? are looking for films that offer a critical reflection on the lived realities of Romani people and productions that include Romani film professionals. Romani people and organizations can also make recommendations for films and Roma and non-Roma filmmakers are invited to submit their films.

Deadline for submission: 30 June 2023


The International Festival of Romani Film AKE DIKHEA? is an 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.
