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.
Dead line for submission is July 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 @ 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.
