The CineFest Miskolc International Film Festival has organizes the Roma-Picture program for the 16th time this year. The program is supervised by the Department of Cultural and Visual Anthropology of the University of Miskolc in cooperation with Dikh TV. This year’s program will be a bit unusual, as it will not only focus on the cinematic representation of Roma, but also on their multi-art presence. In the program we take some well-known and less popular movies focusing on Roma characters also known in literature, painting and music. The screening and the subsequent roundtable discussion will focus on the artistic representation of Roma in the 19th and 20th centuries while exploring the stereotypes from which art (and society) find it extremely difficult to break away.
