Just before the year goes to it's end, we are happy to share some more glamorous moments with you – and to praise the films which got a special mention at AKE DIKHEA? 2021!

Hamze Bytyçi @rromze awarded the short film THE FUTURE IS A SAFE PLACE HIDDEN IN MY BRAIDS by Mihaela Dragan @kali.mihaela with the Special Mention by the Artistic Director for its unique and brave depiction of ancient rituals combined with modern, post-colonial and feminist discourse, taking back the visual representation, which was misused for centuries by dominant, oppressing cultures.

The following three films received a Special Mention by the Jury:
The jury member Sun-Ju Choi lighted the power of the film I AM WHAT I AM – THE STORY OF GIPSY MAFIA by Andrijana Stojković and of the two protagonists from Gipsy Mafia @gipsy_mafia161: Despite of all odds, they go on, spread the word, fight fascism and discrimination.

The jury member Émilie Herbert-Pontonnier @romani.herstory awarded the film SPREAD THE WINGS by Alice McDowell – a beautifully shot, moving film about old traditions, family and motherhood, containing all kind of emotions: grieve, sorrow, but also joy, pride, faith and love, as Emilie stated.

The festival programmer also highlighted the role of AKE DIKHEA? as a platform for young (female) directors – with this in her mind, she gave the last Special Mention of the Jury to the short film ENOUGH, by Alma Dzafic Ferhatovic, who made a very personal story about Antigypsyism in the Swedish school system, influenced by her own experience.
Congratulations to all mentioned film-makers to their great work!

Thank you for joining our Panel talk “Decolonising TV and Film”!
We are very grateful that this panel could take place, it was a much needed conversation, since post colonialism is still such a present appearance in TV and Film.
Djamila Grandits, who is a Vienna based curator, film programmer and cultural worker, moderated the passionate discussion with the film director Benjamin Chimoy @benjamin_chimoy; the actress and filmmaker Biene Pilavcı @beplvi; the Romany journalist, producer, media teacher, and filmmaker Jake Bowers; and the photographer, aspiring documentary film director, and member of IRFC – International Romani Film Commission, Galya Stovanova @galyastoyanova, as Panelists.
After this moving Panel our 7th film slot was being shown and we had a Q&A with Benjamin Menekshe @benjaminmenekshee, the director of “ROMA CULTURE” and Andrijana Stojković the director of “I AM WHAT I AM – THE STORY OF GYPSY MAFIA” with our Jury member Galya Stoyanova!
It was such an interesting conversation, because we were able to get a wider image of the films and their production.

You can still watch the Panel Talk and the Q&A on our YouTube Channel! You’ll find all the links in our bio!
Thank you to all the participants, who were part of the discussions and who created the energy in the room!

🥁 Drum roll please! 🥁

The AKE DIKHEA? awards 2021 are announced:

Best Short Film: ERODE by Charles Newland! The Jury Member Mira Fornay said in her laudatory speech: The film is awarded for expressing the anger about racism in a very simple, direct and very visual way.

Best Film: HOW I BECAME A PARTISAN by Vera Lacková! The Jury Member Galya Stoyanova said in her laudatory speech: The motto of this year’s festival is “Self-representation is my resistance!” and the choice of the film represents this message in the best possible way.

Audience Choice Award: GIPSY QUEEN by Hüseyin Tabak! The Artistic Director of AKE DIKHEA?, Hamze Bytyçi @rromze, highlighted in his laudatory speech the role of the starring actress Alina Şerban @alinaserban_official who also participated in many previous editions of AKE DIKHEA? (e.g. Best Short Film 2020).

About ERODE:
The experimental short film deals with the racist rhetoric against Gypsy, Roma and Travellers in Great Britain. Through disturbing images of police violence against Roma it challenges both the audience and those in authority to confront the repeated lies and intemperance in the portrayal of Roma.

Congratulations!

U.K. 2021, 3‘

About HOW I BECAME A PARTISAN:
The Second World War hides numerous stories, some of which will clearly remain a secret forever. One such mosaic of memories are the fates of the Roma partisans in the former Czechoslovakia. While uncovering the history of the film director’s great-grandfather, the documentary film demolishes the long-held stereotypes of Roma as mere victims of Na**sm.
Czech Republik 2021, 90‘

About GIPSY QUEEN:
The proud, self-confident Ali would not have dreamed a few years ago she would be living in Hamburg as a single mother and earning her living with odd jobs. After all, as a junior boxer she was once the pride and joy of her Roma family far in Eastern Europe. Rejected by her family, she has hung up her gloves. When she meets the worn-out boxing coach Tanne, she dares a comeback.
Germany, Austria 2019, 113’

Thank you for joining our panel „Reclaiming the lens: Romani women in Film“!

After exploring Romani women’s position in silent cinema as passive objects of an often voyeuristic white male gaze in two pre-events in October and November 2021, we discussed how women have reclaimed the lens and are now becoming the subjects of their own stories. Dr. Émilie Herbert-Pontonnier moderated the panel discussion with prominent female Romani film and theatre professionals: Simonida Selimović @simonida7, Mihaela Drăgan @kali.mihaela
and Vera Lacková discussed the cultural-political, artistic, and economic challenges experienced by females working in the industry and the possibilities for creating networks of solidarity and support.

Thanks to all participants for this inspiring & interesting discussion!

Thank you so much for this beautiful gathering, celebrating the Opening of our 5th AKE DIKHEA? Filmfestival with you means so much to us! Thank you for the music @wesamkarema & Band Orphé!

This year’s festival theme is resistance! Roma have been present in cinema since its creation but too often our humanity has been defined by others often making invisible our intersectional and diverse identities that lead to harmful stereotypes and cliches.

Join our ONLINE PANEL TALK today:
Reclaiming the Lens:
Romani Women in Film

After exploring Romani women’s position in silent cinema as passive objects of an often voyeuristic white male gaze in two pre-events in October and November 2021, we will see how women have reclaimed the lens and are now becoming the subjects of their own stories. Dr. Émilie Herbert-Pontonnier will moderate a panel discussion with prominent female Romani film and theatre professionals to discuss the cultural-political, artistic, and economic challenges experienced by females working in the industry and the possibilities for creating networks of solidarity and support.

With @romani.herstory, @simonida7, #VeraLacková & @kali.mihaela!
